Hi everyone!
I've bought my first Hadrian denarius, what do you think about it?
The weight is a little low, but I don't see strange things in the coin.
Regards.
PS:Sorry if the photos are dark, I'll try to upload clear ones if it was necesary.
Hadrian (117 - 138 A.D.), silver denarius from Rome mint 119-122 A.D.

Obv.: IMP CAESAR TRAIAN HADRIANVS AVG, laureate bust right, slight drappery over left shoulder /

Rev.: P M TR P COS III, Felicitas standing left, holding caduceus and cornucopia.

RIC 83 (b); C. 1143.

19mm., 2.51g.

At 2 1/2 grams and the dull look of the surface I'm thinking this is a Limes Denarius.

Bumpy surfaces makes me think of a cast coin. How is the edge?

Not liking the surface either - possible casting bubbles and there is an overall fuzziness of the details has me doubting.

Hi
Here are some better photos. The edge doesn't look bad, and I don't think this is a cast coin, but if it's limes or not bring me more doubts. It doesn't look like other limes I have but the weight is a little low.
What do you think with this new photos?

New photos are much better. Lightest I have found online is
2.96 g. I would guess yours is ancient but
Non regular issue for whatever the reason it was made.

Better pictures are helpful. I still say it's a Limes denarius.

Yes better pics, I'm going to agree with echizento on this one. Comparing your Hadrian to my Limes Denarius of Severus Alexander - very close, I would say.
