I saw Peters' comment just today on your ability of bringing dead coins to life. This is a superb example.

Could some one help with the G&G reference. I saw a similar 80 rati falus (G 466) on SACG.

The G/G 466 is a falus.. the weight of the example in their book was 9.5grams. 
G465 is a 1 1/2 falus similar in design to G/G 466.  The example in the book is 14.2 grams.  However, observed dates do not include AH957. 
That suggests to me that I need to look futher.
