I picked up two "Gordo" III's of Dionysopolis while bottom feeding last week (amongst the usual detritus) I decided to keep one so I lay them side by side for comparison Oh dear ...... Then I flipped them over Oh my ......

Just having fun. Quite a die they used on this coin! Hey, since the reverse lines up but the obverse seems to be shifted, does this prove the device for striking these had some more play for die position then it should have?
That's just exactly my problem ! I was bottom feeding looking for resale Now I'm stuck with both of them ! Imagine my amazement ....... I seriously had no clue until I decided to photograph them I was as ignorant as I look !
