ROMAN EMPIRE, Severina Ant. - RIC 001
Obv: SEVERINA AVG, Diademed and draped bust right on crescent
Rev: CONCOR-D MILIT, Concordia seated left holding patera and cornucopia
Minted in Lugdunum (BL). End A.D. 274 to early A.D. 275
Reference: Bastien 2 (12). Cohen 5. RIC 1

A nice strike, good centering and lovely condition are the reasons I have submitted this as a best of type for this piece from one of the scarcer mints for Severina.

The potrait is really of unusual good style and unusual impressive!
