NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED ISSUE. RIC does not list issue with mintmark pattern PAR. However, Bruun mentions in footnotes few coins with irregular m.m. QAR, •SAR•, PAR (cf. p. 261, 263). Probably most coins with m.m. PAR should be regarded as ancient imitations. But some of them may belong to the official unlisted issue.

Irregular coin. Apparently an ancient imitation.

NOTES

Coin sold on eBay in February 2007 for $34.55.
