Here is another coin that the mailman brought today. It's an attractive Constantius II HOC SIGNO VICTOR ERIS Centenionalis from Sisica mint (RIC, Vol. VIII, #305).

The reverse is remarkably well-struck and the coin has a beautiful green patina. The obverse is either weakly struck or was struck with a worn die.

I like this type because of its symbolism tying it, and Constantius II, back to his father's heavenly vision before the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312 AD., assuring him that "in this sign you shall conquer".

Historically significant coin, where all of the main design detail is sharply struck up without any wear.
The obverse edge lettering is down in sharpness.

Very desirable coin anyway.

Just a week ago, was researching the coins Vetranio struck for Constantius II. (And consequently losing the bidding for the coin(s)...) A very nice reverse of the type struck after Vetranio abdicated. Still on my want list :-)

Marvelous olive green patination
Hard to find in most Constantinian issues
I suspect you are right about the obverse
Worn die
I would still grade as a VF/XF though
