Herennius Etruscus, Early 251 - First Half of June 251 A.D., Overstruck on Severus Alexander Denarius
This antoninianus, or double denarius, was overstruck on an older Severus Alexander denarius, earning 100% profit for the imperial treasury. The inscription and face of Severus Alexander from the older coin are clearly visible. This is the clearest undertype on any overstruck Roman coin we have handled.
