Roman Republic AR Denarius(20mm, 3.33g), "AL" series, after 208 BC, uncertain (perhaps Spanish?) mint. Helmeted head of Roma right; behind, X / The Dioscuri galloping right, 3 dots arranged in triangle with 1 dot to right below horses; below, ROMA in linear frame. Crawford 111/1 var(unfinished monogram, not listed in RRC); cf. NAC 61, lot 499 for variety, same die pair

A very rare single-die variety with only the layout dots of the AL monogram engraved. The only instance I am aware of of such an engraving error in the entirety of Roman Republic coinage.
