Crawford –.Apparently unique and unrecorded. Brown tone and very fine
Ex CNG sale 55, 2000, 1031 (misdescribed).
CNG describes the animal on the obverse of this uncia as a griffin, whereas it is easy to discern from the tail that we are dealing with a pegasus.
Another rare occurrence of an entirely new type on a Republican coin. (RBW)
