From the Andrew McCabe Collection. Ex RBW Collection Duplicate; Numismatica Ars Classica 8 (3 April 1995), lot 648; Aes Rude 14 (2 March 1990), lot 89 (est. CHF 1000); Titano 10 (19 June 1982), lot 113 (est. £It. 750,000).

McCabe (in Essays Russo) Group A1, this being the part of RRC 41 that likely just preceded the earliest denarius issue. It is distinguished from the Group A2 issue by having a triangular area at lower keel level (often with waves within) rather than three converging lines. Group A1 flans are also noticeably larger, thicker, and heavier than those of RRC 41 Group A2, which latter issue likely coincided with the first denarius coinage. [Andrew McCabe]
