Elis, Olympia. Stater
Elis, Olympia. 270s-260s BC. Stater, 11.96g. (10h). Obv: Laureate head of Zeus right. Rx: Eagle standing right, wings closed, between thunderbolt to left and coiled serpent to right. Seltman 232 (obverse only). Apparently from an unpublished reverse die. The head of Zeus on this coin is stylistically one of the finest, especially of this late period. The reverse die is not in Seltman, thus making it an unpublished type. EF/VF.

Ex Evans Sale, Lucerne 1934 according to the coin's old French ticket, but not in the printed catalogue of that sale, Ars Classica XVII, so presumably sold privately.
