Roman, Nero, 54-68 A.D. Sestertius
Nero, 54-68 A.D. Sestertius

Sear #: 1952
RIC: 430
Lugdunum mint 65 A.D.

Obv: NERO CLAVDI CAESAR AVG GER P M TR P IMP PP

Actually my only Nero Sestertius so far. I really like the portrait on this one. The legends on the reverse are a bit weakly, and double struck. Apart from that, a very nice coin in hand. I hope ther are more coins like this out there ...
