CONSTANS AV SOLIDUS, THESSALONICA MINT, CIRCA. 340 - 350 C.E.

RIC 72, Depreyot 6/3, Choice Extremely Fine, see notes, 21.6mm, 4.39 grams

Obverse: CONSTANS AVGVSTVS around rosette diademed, draped and cuirassed bust of Constans to right

Reverse: Two standing confronted Victories, holding between them wreath, insribed within, VOT X MVLT XX in four lines, TES in exergue

An EXCEPTIONALY SHARP coin; top tier on detail. The coin is probably ex-jewelry as has some edge marks and a minor dent. This is evident on the obverse at about 2:30 where the light and shadow converge and on the reverse on the upper part of the right Victory's dress. Still a very high grade coin with tremendous eye appeal, and VERY RARE! Only 2 other examples in the auction records.
