Roman Empire, Valentinian I, AE3
Valentinian I
364 - 368ad
AE3
Obv: D N VALENTINIANVS P F AVG
Rev: GLORIA ROMANORVM - Emperor standing holding labarum, dragging captive by hair
Siscia mint
17mm

This common coin is in stunningly good condition; every hair is visible on the portrait, all details on the figures on the reverse are not worn, this coin is evenly patinated with a light brown patina and even all of the mint-marks are virtually flawless (although the reverse does have one small mark and is slightly weakly struck). The best of this type I have ever seen or owned.

Here's a link to the coin in my gallery:
