Tibsi:
Hi,

What's your opinion about this anto with retrograde 'N' letter and strange portrait? Is it an ancient barbaric or a modern fake coin?

Unlike Elagabal's notorious "horn", I'm fairly sure this is a die break. And the retrograde N is a slip not of the pen, but of the chisel. :) An "almost-ordinary" product of the normal mint IMO. Still it's a good feeling to be the first one to notice such a slip after almost 2,000 years; I like that feeling.
