Sear 20 variety. Hahn 28a.  40-nummia. Large module.

Sear 23-24 type variety. Hahn N32 variety. 20-nummia. Small module.
Cross to left of K, officina number Epsilon to right.
Sear 23 has no stars (as above and this one) but no officina number. Sear 24 has the officina number but includes stars (unlike this one)
Sear does not illustrate Sear 23 and does not mention the possibility of the cross-above-head. Hahn N32 is very worn and the cross above head not mentioned and not visible.
Sear 23 is distinguished from Sear 24 and Hahn 32 by the lack of stars and from Hahn 31 by the existence of an officina number.  Hahn 32 (plate 2) has stars within the K and his illustration has a weak cross-above-head. DO does not have this type.


Sear 23v

Anastasius. Constantinople. Sear 23v.
20-19 mm. 4.44 grams.
Hahn N32 (Hahn 32 has stars within the K, but no cross.)
Cross above head seems to be there, not clear.
This is a Sear type variety because Sear 23 has no officina number and Sear 24 has stars.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


Sear 24 variety. Hahn 32 variety.  20-nummia. Small module.
Cross to left of K, officina number to right, stars in K above and below.
Sear 24 is not illustrated. Sear does not mention the cross above head. Hahn 32 might have an unclear tiny cross at 12:00, but it is not certain and Hahn does not mention the cross.
This is distinguished from Sear 24 and Hahn N32 by the stars. Sear 24 = DO 21, which neither mentions nor illustrates cross-above-head.


Sear 24

Anastasius. Constantinople. Sear 24.
19 mm. 3.84 grams.
Clear cross above head at 11:00,
further behind than usual.
B to right of K.


 



Sear 25 variety. Hahn 33 variety. 20-nummia. Large module.
Cross to left of K, officina number to right.
Sear 25 neither mentions nor illustrates the cross-above-head.
Hahn 33 does not mention the cross. Hahn N33 is very similar but with two tiny pellets on either side of the reverse cross. Neither (plate 3) illustrates the cross-above-head.
Sear 25 = DO 24, with cross-above-head not mentioned, but possibly illustrated by 24.b2, plate IV (It is hard to tell iff the blob in the right place is a cross.)

Sear 25

Anastasius. Constantinople. Sear 25.
28-25 mm. 6.42 grams.
A to right of K
Very weak cross above head
in the gap betwen TA and SIVS.
Possibly stars in the K above and below.
If so, then not in Sear or Hahn.


 



Sear 26 variety. Hahn 35 variety10-nummia. Small module.
CON-CORD (from 1:00 clockwise) around I.
Sear does not mention the cross above head. Sear 26 is illustrated, but if the die had a cross it is off the flan.
Hahn 35a and 35b are very similar to each other. The latter has a pellet to the right of the I. Neither mentions or illustates a cross (plate 2). Sear 26 = DO 19, which neither mentions nor illustrates cross-above-head.

Sear 26

Anastasius. Constantinople. Sear 26.
16-15 mm. 2.01 grams.
Cross above head weak but certain.






 



Sear 29 variety. Hahn 39 variety. 5-nummia.
Large E, usually with two pellets within, officina number to right.
Sear 29 neither mentions nor illustrates a cross-above-head. Hahn 39 neither mentions nor illustrates the cross (plate 3). Hahn 39 is similar to Hahn 37 which merely lacks the two pellets (and also does not mention or illustrate the cross).  Sear 29 = DO 26, which neither mentions nor illustrates a cross-above-head.

Sear 29
Anastasius. Constantinople. Sear 29.
12 mm. 2.15 grams.
Cross above head certain in hand but the color is too even to photograph well.
Two pellets in Epsilon.
Officina A.

Sear 29

Anastasius (?, uncertain from legend)
13 mm. 1.74 grams. 5:30. 
Certain cross above head.
Two marks (?) in Epsilon.

_________

Sear 32. Hahn 41, illustrated, plate 4.  DO 29, plate V, illustrated. 40-nummia. Small module.
Nothing to left or right of M. Cross above. No officina number. NIC in ex.
Sear says "with a small cross in front of diadem" and is not illustrated.
Hahn says "sometimes with cross."  Hahn 41, plate 4, illustrates the cross. Grierson 64, illustrated.

Sear 32

Anastasius. Nicomedia. Sear 32.
25 mm. 9.21 grams.
Clear cross above head.

Sear 33 variety (or Sear 34?). Hahn 43 variety. DO 30.1 plate V. 40-nummia. Small module.
Star to left and right and below M. Cross above. No officina number. NIC in ex.
Sear does not mention the cross above head. Sear 33 is illustrated without the cross-above-head.
Hahn 43 does not mention the cross and the illustration (plate 4) does not have a clear one, but the diadem does have a prominent nearly perpendicular ending.
DO 30.1, plate V, is unclear, but might have a cross well above the head at 12:40.

Sear 34

Anastasius. Nicomedia. Sear 33.
24 mm. 7.82 grams.
Weak but definite tilted cross at end of diadem.
Weak * below M.
If that weak "star" below the M is really an officina number,
then this is Sear 34, which is "sometimes with small cross above front of diadem."




Sear 34

Anastasius. Nicomedia. Sear 33.
24 mm. 9.28 grams.
Weak but definite tilted cross at end of diadem.
Sear 33 has a star below the M and Sear 34 has a delta below the M.
Sear 32 does not have stars either side of the M, so this is Sear 33 or 34.
This coin has the area below the M too weak to tell if it has the star expected of Sear 33
or the delta of Sear 34.



 



Sear 41 illustrated. Hahn 51variety. 20-nummis.
Cross to the left of large K. Cross flanked by N I. * to right. No officina number.
Sear does not mention the cross-above-head. Cross neither mentioned nor illustrated by Hahn 51, plate 4. DO 35 mentions it, but if the illustrated coin 35.1 has one it is very weak.


Sear 41

Anastasius. Nicomedia. Sear 41.
20 mm. 3.90 grams
Clear cross above head.




Sear 41v

Anastasius. Nicomedia. Sear 41.

Sear 49 orientation variety.  (Half the reverse is upside down. Here are two photos, one with each orientation.)
Normally a large K with cross to left and officina number to right. The cross has A N / T X across it.
However, this one has the K and officina number upside down from the cross and its letters.

Sear 52A. Hahn 592 illustates this variety (with an "L") but is reproduced as only 17 mm, much smaller than this example and Hahn 591 which reads like Sear 52 above. I wonder if the smaller size is simply an error in the size of the photograph of Hahn 592.  10-nummia. Large module.
[Officina number]CON-CORD reading outward, counterclockwise, around large I. In ex: ANTX
Sear 52A is not illustrated. Sear says, "cross above head." 52A differs from 52 by having the legend read outward.
Hahn 59 differs from Hahn 60 by having pellets on either side of the I. Both have "cross topped diadem."
Both inward and outward reading legends have the same number, 59. Sear 52A is not in DO.

There are many varieties of designs within and to the right of the E. Sear 29 is similar from Constantinople with an upright officina number to the right.
