Heh, Old Chap, What a Obverse!

Was wasting some time surfing on coin archives and saw this eye catcher of Constantine the Great. Any comments?

Both links are to the same coin. Is this the other coin that you intended to link to:

Thanks Glenn for the added coin post, what a looker!
I also added and corrected the coin for my second coin. A real rare unique military obverse.
Too many coins/ not enough time.
Boy, those engravers were real busy back then, must have had a lot of overtime!
