Ex Classical Numismatic Group 111 (29 May 2019), lot 115 (hammer $8000, but not paid).

This exceptional piece is notable for the fact that the monogram that usually appears to the right of the star has been erased in the die. Interestingly, the obverse die used for this issue was also used to strike staters at Lampsakos (see ADM II p. 47 and n. 24).
