Série 8 coin with rare date.


After closer inspection under the magnifying glass and the carful removal of dirt, i was able to reveal an era date of 118 (142-141 B.C).  I searched through the coins of series 8 in Duyrat 2005 and found that the closest die match was a coin dated 114 (146-145 B.C) numbered 2524, although the date runs slightly of flan i am now confident that both the published coin and my coin share the same dies, bringing the total number of year 118´s to three.

Below is the revised list of era date 118.
