Silver Unit of the Regni and Atrebates, Verica Cavalry Duo type

Very recently we featured an Ancient British silver unit that had been found by John Ruczynski. I said that it was listed in Ancient British Coins as being only scarce but it was the first example to appear on this website. It is therefore quite remarkable that a few days later John unearthed a duplicate.

This is a coin of the Atrebates and Regni, which was struck for Verica (circa AD 10-40). On the obverse is a warrior on a horse galloping to the right, with COMMI F below. On the reverse is another mounted warrior, holding a spear, with VERI behind and CA under the forelegs of the horse.

In Ancient British Coins this type of stater is listed under the Regni and Atrebates as the Verica Cavalry Duo type (number 1238). In the Standard Catalogue it is number 133.

Valuation

There is some deposit on the reverse but this side is otherwise in VF condition. The obverse isn’t quite as good as there is some deposit and the die has been struck so far off centre that no lettering is visible. I’d price John’s latest find at £120.
