Hello folks,

I've got six possible Roman medallions that I've been researching on Wildwinds for the last two weeks without success. They are mostly in "fairly" rough condition, but identifiable. The first is a partial, with some counterstamps. Please help!!

Sorry, I forgot to mention the measurement is 38mm.

@bob, nice work as always. Anyone have a thought on the origin of those counterstamps? It almost seems like one of them was the cause of the coin fabric being torn.

Spence, I have no idea as to the countermarks but would be very interested to know more about them.
