J1 Roman Republican Anonymous struck bronzes McCabe group J1, Related RRC 113 star. Fine style dignified obverses. Straight sided tall and long prowstem. 40 gram As.
Obverses are engraved in a very dignified fine style. Prowstems are tall and narrow, with almost parallel converging straight sides. Flans are well made. Design elements and style are consistent with RRC 113 star As and Semis (or with RRC 196 Triens and Quadrans), and are also similar to RRC 114 rostrum tridens, RRC 122 dog and other issues around 200 BC.
