    Description

    Seltman 190

    Elis. Olympus. 109th Olympiad, c. 344 BC. Stater, 11.96g (5h). Obv: Laureate head of Zeus right. Rx: Eagle standing right on Ionic column. Seltman 190 (this coin). See BCD lot 150 (Leu auction, 10 May 2004). The Leu cataloguer described the lot as 'the second, and best, example known'. The coin in our sale is far superior on the obverse with finer detail. This coin has an incredibly lush portrait of Zeus, which was only possible through multiple strikings, thus, the eagle on the reverse has two heads. This was purchased privately by Harlan Berk at the Gillet Sale, but was one of the many wonderful coins not included in the auction. EF.

    Ex Walther Giesecke, Leipzig, Germany. Ex Gillet, lot 981. Ex Harlan J. Berk 1974. Ex Stack's, 2010, Ruanne Smith Collection, lot 217.
