First the question / help request -
The vendor's description:

I add the following references:

Haberline - pg 87 - 88; Table 36

SNG Cop 432 (this was listed on an old tag sent with the coin)
The Sextans & Uncia from the same series -
Thanks to Red Spork for answering the following question -
The old tag mentions C. BURGAN, 03-07-92, 530. This sounds like an auction from 1992. Can anyone scan the coin's description and pic from the '92 catalog?
With respect to C. Burgan, my library notes indicate that he was an auctioneer/dealer out of Paris whose published lists span the years 1978-2009 and include both fixed price lists and auctions and he likely had a retail operation as well. 3-7-92 likely refers to auction 30, held on July 3, 1992.
