Title: Augustus As Lugdunum - countermark
Post by: kc on October 18, 2019, 07:44:56 am
Good day,

please help me to identify the countermark in the middle:

It looks like a mirrored VAR.

Thank you.

Today I received the coins.

In the lot was a Varus Countermark, a Tiberius with round and rectangular countermark and the third seems to be CCAP or CACP?
