NOT IN RIC

UNLISTED BUST TYPE - B4, HYBRID. RIC lists only bust type B1 for Constantine II. Note error in obv. legend: "CA" instead of "C". Reverse similar to SISCIA 180, but with error in legend: "AVGG" (last "G" retrograde) instead of "AVG". Note also rather crude "raising sun" sign in m.m. Apparently an imitative coin.

NOTES

Coin sold on eBay in September 2013 for $75. Ex Rick Morton Collection.
