Six pointed star of David
original diameter. approx.25mm.
original weight perhaps 8 to 10 grams.
These coins were apparently never issued
whole, and may have been cut up before leaving the mint. They
may have been intended as offerings for pilgrims. Any comments or
information would be appreciated. (the coin fragments match types
but are clearly from different individual coins).
