M. Junius Brutus, Ides of March Denarius (Plated), c. 43 - 42 B.C.†
With this famous type Brutus commemorated his assassination of Julius Caesar on the notorious Ides of March, 44 BC, and claimed that the deed was done to secure liberty for the Roman people (the liberty cap). This coin is a contemporary strike from unofficial dies, in competent style but with an engraver's error in the obverse legend, PIAET for PLAET. In his corpus of EID MAR denarii H. A., Cahn lists five such unofficial plated specimens, namely two in Paris and three in auction catalogues. The specimen that he illustrates, ex Muenzhandlung Basel 6, 1936, 1485, is from the same dies as this coin.
