I have this Augustus ae25 with the reverse I believe the AVGUSTUS legend.
I have a problem with classifying it.
 If it were RPC 2231 the legend would be AUGU-STVS on two lines.
 If it were RPC 2235 the legend would be AUGUSTVS on a line.
 I think this ends the first line with a T. It could be another type, but I have not found anything.
 I kindly ask for a suggestion.

Hi AO,

It may be a barbarous imitation with a bungled legend.

it seems to me that at least the reverse is done well to be a barbaric issue.
