    Description

    Judaea. Bar Kochba Revolt. 132-135 C.E. AR sela (25 mm, 14.51 g, 12 h). Undated, year 3 (134/5 C.E.). Tetrastyle facade of Jerusalem Temple with ark inside; wavy line above; paleo-Hebrew inscription "Shimon" around / Ethrog and lulav; Paleo-Hebrew inscription "For the freedom of Jerusalem" around. Mildenberg 92 (O17/R71); TJC 269; Hendin 713 . Near XF, toned. An exceptional specimen of this rare issue.

    Most varieties of Bar Kochba selaim feature a star or cross above the Temple facade, but this rare issue replaces the star-like element with a wavy line across the roof. This feature may possibly represent the ends of roof tiles.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
