I would tentatively accept it as regular. Confirmation from a better specimen would be welcome.

The price seems high for a rather poor specimen of a common coin. Maybe the high bidder and his underbidder both also spotted the legend error. Was the error mentioned in the eBay description?

Dear Board,

I would like to ask your opinion about this PHIILIPPVS ?

I think, at least hundreds were made of them (the reverse die rather worn), anyone met with its sibling? (are these kind of errors are "unique"s or only curiosities?)

Thank for your answer in advance!

Interesting, because legend errors are rare on Roman imperial coins, and generally only occur on one die of the type.

Such errors are very easy to overlook. Maybe more like yours will turn up, now that you have pointed it out and specialist collectors who read this thread will be on the lookout for other specimens!

I think the wear on the reverse die doesn't tell us anything, since that die may well have been used with other, correct, obv. dies too.

another very interesting piece from my collection this time the correct version of the legend
there are much fewer pieces in this type of legend than those with a bad legend, a curious case
SPQR OPTIMO PRINCIPI its incorrect version would be S P Q R OPTIMO P "B" INCIPI and much more common
