RIC 764
ALFOLDI 070 / - (UNLISTED WITH E1 BUST AND XXIVI MINTAMRK)
COLLECTION NO. 568

NOTE: Extremely rare Alfoldi reverse variant no. 70 in which the two river gods (Savvs and Colapis) are very close to one another and are placed underneath the personification of Siscia instead of being separated and placed on both sides of Siscia (as in variant no. 69). My coin is however unlisted with E1 (Bastien) / G (RIC V.2) bust and XXIVI mintmark.

Of the highest rarity, possibly an unicum.

ALFOLDI 009.006 (1 EX.)
COLLECTION NO. 980
NOTE: This is only the 4th specimen in the world known to me.
Extremely rare variant without any mintmarks. This coin is part of a true "adventvs" issue and was most likely distributed by the emperor himself upon entering the city of Siscia contrary to regular issues of coins with the adventvs reverse and mintmarks in the exergue, which often were struck long after the emperor had left the city. Attribution of coins without any mintmarks to a particular mint is done on the basis of careful analysis of the coin's style and lettering.

Extremely rare and desirable bust type !!!

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.

The only example of this type known to me. Possibly an unicum!

THIS COIN IS PART OF AN UNPUBLISHED AND VERY RARE GREEK LETTER EMMISSION WHICH WAS STRUCK SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH PINK'S LATIN LETTER 3rd EMMISSION.

This coin was struk from the same pair of dies as my coin no. 541

Only the 5th known specimen, including my coin no. 541 which is the fourth known (INFORMATION FROM P.GYSEN + MY OWN DATATBASE)

Adventvs Probi Avg is a rare reverse type for Serdica in itself but in combination with the sole "A" mintmark from an unpublished, exceedingly rare greek letter phase of the 3rd emmission and a decorated shield makes this coin a true gem!

6TH KNOWN SPECIMEN TO ME (THE OTHERS BEING IN PH. GYSEN COLLECTION AND 4 SPECIMENS IN VEMANIA ISNY II HOARD)

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.

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.

ALFOLDI 083.008 corr. (1 ex. in La Venera Hoard)
COLLECTION NO. 1120

Extremely rare reverse type (SOLI INVICTO AVG in spread quadriga instead of Soli Invicto only).

Apparently only the second known specimen in the world with this bust type and officina (the first one being in La Venera hoard). Alfoldi erroneously depicted clouds underneath the spread quadriga on La Venera specimen. In reality, there are no clouds on the Venera specimen, as on my specimen (the latter information courtesy of Jean Guillemain).

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.

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!

Probus antoninianii without mintmarks were either trial coins or (much more often) donativa coins. Their attribution to a given mint is based on careful analysis of the coin's style and die links.

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").

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.
