This obverse form is generally associated with Gallo-Belgic tribes; see Rudd; Ancient British Coins (2010); p29; ABC 40. Circa 80-60 BC. A common reverse for the boat type quarter staters is a tree, however the reverse of this example consists of converging chisel marks with a globular body above, and fine lines radiating to the edge of the coin (very difficult to interpret as a tree).

Description: Ball-headed pin head made from gold with filigree wire and pellet decoration. The pin head is hollow and globular, with a circular hole at each end surrounded by an annulet of beaded wire; the upper and lower half are separated by a border of a line of beaded wire either side of what appears now to be a plain wire, but on closer inspection is actually a beaded wire worn down so that the beads have almost disappeared. This triple-strand border probably conceals a soldered join. Both halves are decorated alike, with two-ply twisted wire forming three pairs of opposed S- …
