 Start: $650 Est. $800-$900 Final: $787 (2 bids: 751 - 827)

 Start: $375 Est. $500-$600  Final: $395 (2 bids: 377- 500)

Struck by the pair of dies O17-R21, here is a beautiful example for this coin type that commemorates the foundation of the port of Caesarea Maritima. R21 has a special importance because it is the single die that shows a 'tridimensional' view of the galley, with two rows of oars well visible on each side and some minute details inside.
