In his article, Andrew Burnett classifies the dies for this variety as being a part of a group of “ancient plated coins.” He states “The silver plating is often relatively thick, and to the eye the coins may well appear quite normal. It is necessary, wherever possible, to ascertain the specific gravity as this is the only sure criterion.”
