I think I've got it figured out, but this example is sufficiently different from all the others I could find, that I wanted to submit it to the wiser ones for an opinion. So, I think I have here yet another example of the Dunubian Celtic imitatives of the Macedonian Strymon/Trident issue SNG Cop 1299. The incorrect legend and trident certainly fit, though the obverse doesn't look very tribal. Perhaps one of the "very worn dies" referred to in the NumisWiki article? Weight is 4.78 g, dimensions 19 x 16 mm, and the die rotation (assuming the trident points up) is about 33 degrees. Sorry, got lazy and just scanned it, so the slightly schyphate shape of the coin makes the rim of the obverse somewhat fuzzy in the image. Appreciate your thoughts.

Yes, but i think the dies are not worn but are just flat engraved.

The flan and style looks quite good for these issues compared to my specimen:

Thanks! Yes, I had no idea it was a tribal issue when I picked it up. Appreciate your input.
