Roman Empire, Constantine I, AE3, Thessalonica, RIC 32 variety
obv: CONSTA-NTINVS AVG, Bust l. cuir. w/ spear over rt. shoulder
rev:VOTXX / MVLT / XXX / TS[delta] in wreath
RIC Thessalonica 32 var. R5

This legend break is unrecorded for this type- in combination with extremely rare bust type and scarce reverse type. A fantastically rare coin.

Sorry, it is an error in RIC. There is no VOT/XX legend break in this issue!

Evan is talking about the obverse legend break CONSTA-NTINVS

Yep, that's it. I've seen perhaps 3 other specimens with this break, making it somewhat more common than what I originally thought. Still, a nice coin!
