Radiate, cuirassed bust of Probus looking right. I do not see that this is special bust variation, except that it seems to be double struck (another head of Probus is visible in the background.

See: J. Guillemain, La monetazione di Probo a Roma (276-282 d.C.), tav. 3 no. 585 - a die match?

Hello Quadrans,
Thank you for sharing this coin. It is an interesting coin of the 1rst emission in Rome, but not very rare.
I think I have an obverse die match in my archive (see attachments).
All the best,
S. Estiot
