Caracalla, 28 January 198 - 8 April 217 A.D.
|Caracalla|, |Caracalla,| |28| |January| |198| |-| |8| |April| |217| |A.D.|, The large pit on the obverse and bubble on the reverse were initiated by fire damage followed by corrosion. Inside the pit is the green verdigris of oxidized copper, indicating the coin is probably a fourree. It is possibly, however, an official coin which just appears to be plated. The style does seem official.
