UNLISTED ISSUE. Specimen similar to LONDON 293 except for dot over PLON (in arch). Coins with such m.m. are not listed in RIC as a separate issue. However, dot in arch is mentioned in footnotes 293 and 296 on p. 116 (for Constantine's I and Constantine's II coins). The relatively large number of known specimens suggests, that dot is not an accidental die crack or an engraver's error. On the other hand, dot above arch is probably a centering mark (see example of LONDON 293 with dot above arch). Note also the second dot after rev. legend. Coin should be listed after LONDON 300.
