This is actually very nice for one of these. And that old flip is very wrong (hopefully) in my opinion and had a crazy price on it for what they thought it was.) 20 mm, 2.91 grams.

In that condition--with the nose gone--a Carinus would not be worth $20, much less $460. Good for you for noticing it was a Carausius, not Carinus. Even so, better examples of Carausius can be found for 1/10 the ridiculous "$460" listed price.

Tis he lesson not to pay too much attention to identifications and proposed prices. Sometimes they have little relation to reality.

It is a very nice Carausius - nice overstrike with the undertype clearly from a different die. There is an interesting error in the legend too - IMP CARAV$VS PF AVG.
