about VF

The lepton Hendin 472 differs from Hendin 471 by its cruder, more 'barbarous' style, thick anchor and circle-line, legends illegible.
This is the so-called 'widow's mite' (see Mk. 12, 41ff).

This type could have been struck during the reign of his mother, Salome Alexandra, as queen, 76-67 BC, or during his reign as king or ethnarch. Some scientists think that this type has been struck under Alexander Jannaeus at the end of his reign. Usually this type is crude with unreadable letters and incomplete legends.

This type is overstruck on type TJC N (legend over lily, cornucopiae over anchor)
