Coin is very worn, not much legend visible.  Just larger than a US Quarter.  Maybe augustus...

Thanks,

Hi Circus_Maximus,

Do you mean there is no genuine portrait, or you havn't seen one ?
Here is the same as above but in better condition

That is a very odd looking coin Potator, what is it's origin?

I was thinking the same thing.  Here is mine, not the greatest shape but the style is quite different from the one posted above....

Wow, all very nice coins.  Thanks for sharing...

The coin looks like RIC 111.

I gotta add mine, just because it was a lump of crud when I found it in some uncleaned coins, and I like the green patina it still retains.  Grin

Hi Steve,

I bought it at a coin fair in Paris AD1985. What has always intrigued me is the similarity with some portraits of Nero Claudius Drusus
