Maximinus II IOVI from Alexandria
« on: June 29, 2017, 02:21:01 PM »
this coin is being sold as an unofficial issue, but it does not look right right to me. The flan doesn't look ancient and the letters look more like modern fakes than ancient unofficial issues. Out of curiosity, I put a modest bid on it, which I won, so I will be able to see it shortly.
