The more I look at this coin the more amazed I am at the subtle detail that is preserved. The snakes' eyes on the caduceus! I've never seen that before. Additionally, the patina is superb in its uniform and even development and the residual earthen encrustations only add to it. An exceptional and absolutely stunning example of the type and possibly the best of the best bronzes in the galley.
