I get this Nero / Divos Claudius Didrachm from Caesarea. There are 4 types of this coin, with different obverse, reverse legend.

RPC I 3652
Obv: NERO CLAVD DIVI CLAVD F CAESAR AVG GERMA

RPC I 3653
Obv: NERO CLAVD DI CLAVD F CAESAR AVG GERMA

--------------

 

I think I read the follow at my coin.

Obverse: NERO CLAVD DIVI CLAVD F CAESAR AVG GERMA
Thats only at RPC 3647, 3648 and 3652.

Reverse: DIVOS CLAVD AVGVST GERMANIC PATER AVG
Thats only at RPC 3647, 3652 and 3653.

So the only exact obverse and reverse is at RPC 3647 and 3652.

For the style - I would say, that the portraits of RPC 3652 are bigger - at the example coins.
So I would say - its more RPC 3647.
RPC says between 3647 and 3652: "Has the same description, but differs stylistically from RPC 3652, which is perhaps from a different mint."

Or what you mean? Is there anything I dont see - for the different?

 

And last additional Question - at the Nero Obverse - end the legend with GERMA or only GERM? If its only GERM, then its a variation of RPC 3647 ("The variant legend ending GERM recorded by Sydenham").
