I found this while cleaning my mother house, it belonged to my dad. Before his death in 85 he was an avid detector and coin collector. He picked coins up from all over the world in his travels. He was in the Air Force. Any idea on this coin? I know the picture isn't great but it was the best I could do with the scanner.

Any ideas of its age and ID? Any help is appreciated.

Can't really tell much from the image but I believe that this is A coin of the emperors Valentinian I 364-375 AD, or Valens 364-378 AD. If you look at the inscription on the obverse it should read DN VALENTINIANVS PF AVG for Valentinian or DN VALENS PF AVG for Valens. The reverse is the emperor dragging a capative and holding a labarum. Constantinopolis mint.
