SP0018 Three Judaean Widow's Mites - uncleaned
$24.95
This lot is from a group of Widow's Mites (AE lepta struck by Alexander Jannaeus, 103-76 bc). They feature an inverted anchor on the obverse, with a star in circle reverse. The image shows one side of five different cleaned coins of this type. Widow's Mites were very hastily struck, and normally flans are irregularly shaped, one side is better than the other, or the design may be off center.
While collectors think of such irregularities as defects in most issues, in this case the need to rapidly produce enough of these small bronze coins to meet the needs of the Jewish people for coins that did not violate their religious principles made irregularities inevitable.
These small bronze coins and the larger prutah were the only coins that the Jewish kings (who were actually client kings under the Seleukid Kingdom of Syria) were allowed to strike. 48 widow's mites would buy a loaf of bread.
You will receive a lot of three uncleaned coins chosen at random from this group, along with detailed cleaning instructions.
