Bull - Julian II The Apostate
DN FL CL IVLI-ANVS PF AVG
SECVRITAS REI PVB
(feather)NIKB.(feather)
RIC VIII 122 Nicomedia

Bull, head facing, standing right; above, two stars

There is still some dirt on this coin which is what shows the mottled appearance. The coin is in remarkable condition, however with high relief and detail.

So nicely what you define it as remarkable condition.. dirt may be or corrosion.. it seems as fine-very fine grade only..

As for wear (and that is what a grading is for, IMO), the coin is gVF for me, but it requires professional cleaning to bring out the details. I don't see any corrosion on that coin.
