FIRST REVOLT JEWISH WAR AE QUARTER SHEKEL, YEAR 4 - 69/70 C.E.
Hendin 1368, TJC 213, MCP O7/R7 only 2 listed, Very Fine, some cleaning scratches, 22mm, 7.95 grams, Jerusalem Mint
Obverse: Two lulavim (palm branches with myrtle and willow branches), SH'NAT ARBA REVA (year four, quarter) in paleo-Hebrew script around
Reverse: Etrog (citron), L'GEULAT ZION (for the redemption of Zion) in paleo-Hebrew script around
Nice bold strike with CLEAR letters. COMPLETE obverse inscription. Reverse about 15% off center but at least a part of every letter is there. No doubt a coin like this would run $4,000+ if fully centered. This coin was struck in the year before the destruction of the 2nd Temple in Jerusalem
