Rare

This rare fully-anonymous type related to the signed issues with corn-ear comes from Crawford's Sicily(1) mint - the same mint responsible for the Cr. 67/1 victoriati and the Cr. 69 corn-ear KA bronzes. While some basic characteristics such as visor type appear similar at first, style clearly differentiates it from the Cr. 75/1c anonymous denarii which seemingly come from a separate mint referred to as Sicily(2) by Crawford, which had its own corn-ear issues as well as various other signed and unsigned issues. Both mints' locations are uncertain but some numismatists have associated Sicily(1) with the town of Catania on the island's Eastern coast based on the "KA" on the Cr. 69 bronzes.
