Automan:
Here is a coin of particular interest because it shows significant traces of flan preparation. Additionally, it's also quite nice, if I may say so myself. :D

145. Nicopolis ad Istrum. Gordian III. Æ 27 (4 Assaria). A.D. 238-244. Magistrate: Sabinius Modestus. Obv: AUTKMANTWNIOS GOPDIANOS. Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right. Rev: (URSAB)MODESTOU NIKOPOLEITWNPRO, (CICT…) in ex. Eagle standing, head raised, holding wreath in beak. Ref: BMC -. Grade: VF, slightly irreglar flan with minor flat section as made, brown-green patina. Indentation on obv. and rev. with circular tracings. Circular tracings also on flat section of flan. Die Axis: 360°. Weight: 13.94 g.

Does anyone else have coins whit circular tracings around the central indentations? If you do, post them!

Automan:
If you look closely, especially at the reverse, you'll see the circular tracings.
