JUDAEAN HACKSILBER, FIRST TEMPLE PERIOD
16.1mm x 12mm, 3.64 grams, used Circa. 10th - 6th Century B.C.E.
RARE Judaean Hacksilber "or Hacksilver" purchased in Israel. This ingot weighs 3.64 grams, a quarter shekel. It is slightly heavy but has two small adhesions which increased the weight slightly.
After being almost extinct for many years a large group came to market several years ago. It appears that this group has already been dispersed and there is a dearth of Judaean hacksilver on the market. This is the LAST piece in our stock and of an excellent weight!
