    Description

    Siculo-Punic Coinage, "The Mint of the Camp." Circa 305-295 B.C. AR tetradrachm. Head right of young Melqart-Herakles wearing lion skin/Horse's head left; behind, palm tree. 17.15 g. Jenkins (SNR 57) 312 (same obverse die). AU50 ICG, obverse somewhat weakly struck.
    G. Kenneth Jenkins' masterful die study of the coins of Punic Sicily appears in various issues of Schweizerische Numismatische Rundschau (Swiss Numismatic Review), SNR 57 having been published in 1978. While the obverse die (#100) was known to Jenkins, the reverse die of this specimen is not included in the corpus, telling us that this coin was probably unearthed after the date of publication.
    From the Collection of Dr. Joseph M. Seventko. (Variety PCGS# 100027, Base PCGS# 9812)

    Weight: 16.97 grams
