Roman Republic Æ Semis(11.47g, 27mm). Anonymous, after 211 BC, mint in Southern Italy, Sicily or Sardinia. Laureate head of Saturn right, S behind/Prow of galley right, S above, ROMA below. McCabe Anonymous group H1(half weight overstrikes); Cf. Crawford 56/3
Overstruck on Carthaginian bronze with head of Tanit left/Horse standing right, head turned left. For overstrike, cf Hersh, Numismatic Chronicle 1953, 6; Crawford, overstrikes 31.

Purchased from Lucernae, 14 July 2022

While it is common to find examples of some of the smaller denominations overstruck on Carthaginian coins, Crawford and Hersh each cite only a single example of an "uncial" semis overstruck on Carthage from the Scullard collection. This is the only example I have seen offered for sale in the ~8 years between when I began collecting and when I acquired this coin.
