Nerva, 18 September 96 - 25 January 98 A.D., Ancient Counterfeit
Small bumps are often found on fouree denarii. They are normally about 2-3 mm in diameter, sometimes open revealing rich copper salts or, after cleaning, the copper core. These bumps are created by chemical reactions ocurring in between the copper core and the silver plate. The bump on this coin is by far the largest we have seen.
