Hendin 1149a overstrike
Alexander Jannaeus. AE Prutah, Jerusalem Mint. Hendin 1149(a) (cornucopias overstruck on lily and inscription overstruck on anchor). Obverse: Hebrew inscription (Yonatan the High Priest and the Council of the Jews) within wreath. Reverse: Double cornucopia adorned with ribbons, pomegranite between horns.

On the obverse, the circle which originally enclosed the anchor is visible on the top with part of the original Greek inscription from the underlying coin from 1:00 o'clock to 3:00 o'clock. On the reverse of this coin, traces of the lily are clearly visible above and perpendicular to the cornucopias. A portion of the original script from the underlying coin can be seen from 11:00 o'clock to 1:00 o'clock.

Nice overstrike, with both legends of overtype and undertype clear!
