This gorgeous rose-gold Ring and Star Type (Talbot’s Boar Horse B stater) has sharp back-to-back crescent moons and a truly delightful horse with a cute head, arched mane and amazingly angular forelegs. A superb specimen which, thanks to its slightly ovoid flan, exhibits a well-centred horse and the distinctive ladder-like exergual decoration. Type illustrated in Made for Trade p.184.
