Hello Everyone,

Today is coin might be 'silvered' roman coin, I would like to double check whether the observe is Probvs. However, I couldn't tell what reverse type it is. It seems like an angel holding an apple.

Pictures are below



I would like to hear your opinions and information of this coin.

Thank you,

Kay Kwon

The photos could be a lot better - if they were brighter and in focus, it might help a lot. I'm going to guess it is Probus with a Victory reverse (cf RIC V Probus 213):

Bust of Probus, radiate, cuirassed, right, IMP PROBVS P F AVG.

Victory, winged, draped, walking left, holding wreath in right hand and trophy in left hand, VICTORIA AVG.

Well, those are much better!

It still looks like Probus and Victory (RIC 213), like this http://www.wildwinds.com/coins/ric/...C_0213.5.jpg

The mintmark looks like R-winged thunderbolt-ς.
