Silver plated; 17.5mm/3.8gm   Rome -- ca, 47 BC

Con/ Some loss of plating, otherwise, about Very Fine. Bright and lustrous; much better in hand!

Ref/ Crawford 453/1a-b CRI 29; Sydenham 959-959a; Plautia 15-15a; RBW 1583-4

Seller's Note/ These ever popular issues are rare and always priced for multiple thousands of dollars. See the second photo as an example.

So why is our price so low? Because it is a contemporary forgery and most likely struck from worn official dies that should have been destroyed, but were not! Wow!
