Neapolitan-tooled-to-Roman

 

 

 

 

 

Rome, potentially tooled coin. The coin lacks the seven or eight-pointed star on the side of the bull which is a design feature on the Roman type . In hand  an expert’s view was that the legend was tooled from a Neapolitan coin.  The vendor refunded promptly. The diagnosis was not certain, just probable. Not confirmed.
