Antoninus Pius Sestertius - RIC III 1004Obverse: ANTONINVSAVG PIVS PP TRP XXII. Antoninus Pius, Laureate, facing right
Reverse: TEMPLVMDIV AVG REST COS IIII S C, octastyle temple with Augustus and Livia. Unlike the authentic/unmodified coin (as pictured in RIC III, plate VI 114), the Augustus in this thing is hilariously waving at the viewer in this coin. Who knew the Princeps was such a friendly guy?

Sold on eBay on 12/29/2010 for $710 by moonstone_lovely, where it was misidentified as RIC 787 (a rare coin). This coin instead loosk like RIC 1004 (which is more merely scarce according to RIC III). In the opinion of Forvm experts, this coin is at best heavily tooled and repatinated, and most likely the underlying coin that was damaged to make this thing may not have even been an authentic sestertius.
