LOVELY eye appeal with a BOLDLY struck Citron on a broad flan, on the VERY RARE Quarter Bronze shekel. This coin was struck in the year before the destruction of the 2nd Temple in Jerusalem
The rarity of the quarter year four bronzes is altogether underrated and they rarely come up. THIS specimen is one of the RAREST dies with ONLY 1 listed on MCP for this die combination!
