RIC: 454
COLLECTION NO. 1407

NOTE: spectacular, extremely rare and desirable reverse type struck only at Ticinum during the 3rd emmission (after Probus' successful military campaign in Germania) in combination with an interesting military bust with shield decorated with floret. Despite the flan crack a true gem and coin of the highest rarity and numismatic interest!

Only the 3rd example of this exact type known to me (the remaining two are listed by S. Estiot in her 2006 article on the 3rd emmission of Ticinum under Probus "Une campagne germanique de l’empereur Probus : l’atelier de Ticinum en 277-278").

FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: -/-//A

RIC: 837 VAR. (MINTMARK "A" UNLISTED)
COLLECTION NO. 541

NOTE: EMPEROR ON HORSE + SOLDIERS ON SHIELD

THIS COIN IS PART OF AN UNPUBLISHED AND EXCEEDINGLY RARE GREEK LETTER EMMISSION WHICH WAS STRUCK SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH PINK'S LATIN LETTER 3rd EMMISSION.

This coin was struck from the same pair of dies as my coin no. 1106

Only the 5th known specimen in the world, including my coin no. 1106 which is the fourth known (INFORMATION FROM PH.GYSEN + MY OWN DATABASE)

Adventvs Probi Avg is a rare reverse type for Serdica in itself but in combination with the sole "A" mintmark from an unpublished, exceedingly rare greek letter phase of the 3rd emmission makes this coin it a true gem!

This coin is part of the scarce first phase of Ticinum’s 6th emission (according to Pink’s emission classification) with greek numerals of officinae not accompanied by the XXI monetary reform mark. In the much more common and abundant second phase of 6th emission the greek numerals were followed by the XXI mark in the exergue.
