Lot # 112 - Auction is closed.Estimate: US$1500 / Price Realized: US$1600
MA, struck by P. Manlius Vulso. Quinarius
MA, struck by P. Manlius Vulso. Quinarius, 1.91g. (2h). Sardinia, 210 BC. Obv: Helmeted head of Roma right, V behind. Rx: Dioscuri riding right; ROMA below in linear frame. Crawford 64/1. Sydenham 159. Toned. About VF.

Purchased from Joel Malter, 4 September 1981.

Extremely rare; only one example on Coin Archives with photograph. That coin, the RBW specimen, lot 279 in NAC 61, hammered at 4000 CH +commission. The obverse of the RBW example was better centered than that of the present lot, but the surfaces were inferior and the MA monogram--the most important element of the type, was incomplete and a bit flatly struck.
