Hi,

A rare coin indeed from the first Rome issue and well preserved.

Your coin is draped and cuirassed viewed from the rear and, as far as I am aware, there are at least 3 recorded specimens (see Normanby Hoard, page 126, citing Doyen 'Deux nouveux examplaires de la premiere emision de Claude II a Rome' Cahiers Numismatiques 86, December 1985):

1. Paris; ex Evereux hoard
2. Chezelles hoard
3. Private collection, no provenance

Regards,

Mauseus

Thanks, Mauseus
