Herod Antipas, eighth denomination struck year 29-30 CE in Tiberias (GBC 1206*) 1.35 g.
An extremely rare coin type of Antipas in a superb condition on both sides. It is the 5th specimen ever recorded*, and the 2nd finest (http://www.menorahcoinproject.org/ant-09.htm)
* The plate coin GBC 1206 is an attribution error. It is in fact a GBC 1202 (with a reed, not a palm branch) struck by the pair of dies O3-R3.
Est. $1,500-2,000
