Very cool find! I am seeing the reverse legend as SPQR OPTIMO CAESARI. A completely new reverse type had to be exciting to find. Congratulations.

Hi Barry you and the other readers of this should know that I was approached by a very knowledgeable dealor who recognized the uniqueness of this coin and thought I might be interested in acquiring it given my long time interest in the period. He also took the picture. Just goes to show that collectors need to establish long-term relationships with dealors. best Tory
