Obverse off centre, otherwise very fine/extremely fine and a very scarce type.

The Sotheby sale of the Paeonian hoard (London, 16th April, 1969, lot 482-489), had several examples of this type that came from the same dies. This is a type of much better style and condition than usual particularly on the reverse.
