A fantastic find. I am a big fan of the II COS reverse series and have 8 examples but not this one. Congratulations.

If not already done, someone asked for examples of layout scribe circles from fresh dies. Your reverse is a great example to cross post to that thread.

Hi, Martin,

I recognized your "BONAE SPEI II COS" coin when I look in your great gallery...

The other interesting specimen "FORTVNAE REDVCI II COS" I realized just now, a great coin too... +++

Rev:– VIRTVS AVG COS II, Roma, seated left on shield, holding Victory and spear
Minted in Alexandria, A.D. 194
