Is this tiny coin a Greek Obol???? NEED HELP!!!!!
« on: April 30, 2018, 01:55:25 AM »
Hi All

I have tried to find out what this tiny coin is without any luck. There seems so far to be 2 camps, one who says it is a Greek coin and the other who believe it to be a Celtic.
The coin itself is tiny being a whopping 6.5 - 7 mm in diameter and an amazing 0.5g in weight.

I thought it looked to be on the Obv. an ancient water jug with other possible imagery which I cant work out. Rev. either a knot, a stylized swastika or possibly stylized wheel.

Any help in identifying it would be truly appreciated.

Thanks
