BUST TYPE: B
FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: -/-//KAΔ
WEIGHT 4.18g / AXIS: 4h / DIAMETER: 21-23mm
RIC: UNLISTED WITH VIRT PROBI AVG REVERSE LEGEND
COLLECTION NO. 1069
NOTE: extremely rare and desirable abbreviated VIRT PROBI AVG reverse legend (instead of the full VIRTVS PROBI AVG legend). This legend was first published by Ph. Gysen in 2000 in the article: Nouvelles donnes concernant l'atelier de Serdica sous le rgne de Probus.

Currently only 23 specimens of this reverse legend are known (information from Ph. Gysen). My specimen is however the only one from officina delta and the only one to have the scarce IMP C M AVR PROBVS PIVS AVG obverse legend. Therefore it is a true unicum and of the highest numismatic interest!

MINT: Serdica
FIELD / EXERGUE MARKS: -/-//A
WEIGHT 3.75g / DIAMETER: 22 mm
RIC 861 var. (unlisted with A only in exergue)
COLLECTION NO. 1351

Note: A coin with a spectacular error in the obverse legend: POBVS (instead of PROBVS). Not only is this the only example of this specific type known to me, but it is - to my knowledge - the only example of such an error in Emperor's name in the whole coinage of Probus.

The coin is part of the very rare and brief A-Delta (without the KA mintmark) first phase of Serdica's 3rd emmission unlisted by RIC as well as by Pink. Although the exergue is barely legible, under a magnifying glass I see an "A" there rather than a Delta. Nevertheless I will have the coin cleaned which hopefully will make the exergue more legible.

Unique and of the highest numismatic interest. The coin joins another interesting unicum with an erroneous obverse legend in my collection: PRBVS instead of PROBVS - see my coin no. 21 from Siscia.
