World Coins - Merovingian - Childeric I - Metz(?) - Uncertain Bronze Piece

5th century AD

Obv: profile bust with CHILDRICVS legend. Rev: uncertain design with MET[ ] legend for a mint at Metz(?). 1.8 grams. Fair.

Provenance
Property of a Netherlands collector; acquired on the European market.
Footnotes
An interesting item, worthy of research; the style is very much of the Childeric I era and is similar to the gold tremisses but the flan is thicker; perhaps once plated as a contemporary forgery?
