Great coin, andyg. Pretty well centred, excellent detail on a good quality flan. May it long please your eye. TFP.

You have to appreciate the effort the city has made to identify the coin, but there advice to send it to the BM was spot on. I wonder if Mr. Constantine would have had an id from the BM today. Last time I tried, they wanted a string of documents to prove ownership, effectively ending their id service.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
