I recently acquired this coin folks.

I am not versed by any means with ancient coins.

Is this a real ancient coin?

What is this?

What is the value?

Thanks!

Yes, the Constantine coin is real. It is pretty common. It has an interesting portrait. The legend says
IMP C FL VAL CONSTANTINVS PF AVG
with "FL VAL" for "Flavius Valerius", part of his name.
