A flip-flop feast
« on: September 16, 2018, 10:34:15 AM »
Three third-century brockage antoniniani presided over by a majestic double struck soldier-and-hut centenionalis of Constans. Beats me how that one was made.

Could the three antoniniani be the result of a sloppy recoinage by overstrike, rather than brockage? The portrait side on the three antoniniani overlaps slightly, so there may well be more of those out there.
