VARHRAN II, SASSANIAN AR OBOL, 241 - 272 C.E.
Gobl 65, VF, chipping edges, deposits, 15.5mm, .55 gram
Obverse: Winged crowned bust of Varhran, near Queen wearing griffin headed crown; facing prince, wearing eagle headed crown

A VERY RARE coin missing from most better collections. Quite scarce as a drachm and almost impossible to find in this denomination! Some remaining encrustations but still well centered and quality portraits on the obverse where it counts.
