This amazing example is unlike any campgate issue I've seen. The obverse is quite close to an official issue, but the reverse has a legend for one of the caesars and not Constantine I. The campgate is so far from the official mint types that one has to wonder what was the prototype for this coin - another coin or an actual building?
