Chevron Tail. c.30BC-AD20. Silver stater. 19mm. 4.03g. Durotrigan wreath motif with small, slanted leaves and shallow crescent on end of hairbar./ Disjointed horse left, horizontal tail-lines with chevron pattern, horizontal ‘coffee bean’, dot between rear hooves. ABC 2172 var., VA−, BMC−, S−. EF, virtually as struck, large flan, sharp chevrons. Ex Graham Garner collection, ex Matthew Rich collection. EXTREMELY RARE first we’ve had.

This may (or may not) have come from the Upton, Hants., hoard, 1997, which included some staters with ‘cross-hatching between the strands of the tail’ (see CHIAB p.187-195). Certainly it’s the finest Chevron Tail we’ve seen. A superb specimen in pristine condition.
