IONIA. Uncertain city. c.650-550 BC. EL Third stater (12mm, 4.64 gm). NGC Choice AU, Strike 5/5, Surface 5/5. Cluster of pellets / Bipartate Incuse punch. As made and fully Mint State IMO, although NGC chose to grade it Ch AU. The last example I sent in for grading, which I consider to be an equal to this coin, graded MS, 5/5, 5/5 and I sold it instantly to an ancient coin dealer for his personal collection for $10,000. Certainly among the finest examples of the type.
