Hi, I could not help but post this one that accompanies the other Camp Gate of Crispus from Constantinople.

Another "key coin" of this series. The "Eyes (and Head looking up) to Heavan" seems to be a much sought after coin. Victor Failmezger has a fine one picture in his book (and featured on the front cover as well). I read that he only saw ONE of these in 30 years of collecting!!
Beast coins also has one pictured on his web site. Lucky Victor Clark of www.constantinethegreatcoins.com has one (same coin as the wildwinds coin).

So, they are out there and lady Fortuna may smile on you as well!
