    Description

    First Fractional Denomination

    Uncertain mint. Ca. 670-660 BC. EL hemistater (7.13 gm). Field of striated lines, resembling ripples on water / Triple incuse punch, with narrow rectangular punch arranged vertically between two roughly square ones. Linzalone, "Electrum" 1024 (this coin). Cf. Weidauer 5 (trite). Extremely rare, one of only five known examples. Extremely fine.

    The striated hemistater, the half-denomination to the previous lot, is even rarer than the full stater, with only five known examples. It could thus be considered the first fractional denomination.

    It goes without saying that after the auction when we had a chance to have dinner together and get to know each other it even made it a better experience for me. I look forward to getting more involved with Heritage in the Future.
