Very scarce

Ex RBW Collection, ex Wayne Phillips list 194, 280, May 1995, $35 USD

This is a very scarce type from a period where sextantes were minted in only very small numbers. Note that there are actually two "SAX" series - the "C.SAX" series seen here and a "SAX" series minted during this same general period with a noticeably different prow style.
