Aes Rude is the earliest type of money used by the population of central Italy. They are actually irtregular pieces of bronze with no marks or designs. More advanced types were used later: Aes Signatum or Aes Grave, and in the end, normal struck coins (FAC).

O203 is the only die where Demos is called "holy". Regarding its style this type is later than
the types 133-144. The increase of the module suggests the time around AD 250 (MacDonald)

VERSENKT / 5.MAY 1915 (The liner Lusitania sunk by a German submarine May 5, 1915)
rev. The death as skeleton sells tickets of the Cunard Line to passengers. At left a man is reading a
newspaper with the headline "U / BOOT / GEFAHR" (Submarine danger). Behind him with top hat the
German ambassador Count von Bernstorff with a wagging finger: Germany has warned about the
submarine danger in the same newspaper.
Above "GESCHÄFT ÜBER ALLES" (Business Above All)

The incorrect date of May 15 (The Lusitania was sunk on May 17) was the cause for the speculation that the sinking was planned long beforehand. Kurt Goetz has corrected his mistake in a second edition but because of the reaction of the world public the medal was withdrawn. The British used the chance to edit a great quantity of propaganda copies to blame the Germans. This specimen is clearly an British copy because of the used MAY (insted of the German MAI). But there are copies with MAI too.

Today it is proven that the Lusitania was misused as military transporter.
