Late Whaddon Chase. Double Circle Type. Sills British Lc1, class 3b, dies 2?/22. c.55-45 BC. Gold stater. 16mm. 5.73g. Virtually blank./ Horse right, beaded mane, wing motif with beaded tail and pellets above, cogwheel in front, large double circle below. ABC 2344, VA 1502, BMC 346, DK 430, S 33. CCI 12.0200 (this coin). Near EF, neat round flan of golden gold, super horse, bold cogwheel. Ex Tony Warner collection. VERY RARE only 17 others recorded.

This is a superb specimen of the Double Circle Type gold stater. The virtually-blank obverse is free from any of the usual scuffs and scratches that accumulate due to decades of being tossed around in cultivated soil – the surfaces are smooth and immaculate. The well-formed horse is centrally positioned on the flan, allowing us a full view of the winged symbol above and the solar ‘cogwheel’ in front. Published in Divided Kingdoms p.472 (this coin).
