CPK Posted January 4 · Supporter Share Posted January 4 I recently acquired this small coin. According to the seller, it was "unlisted in RIC" - which seems to be accurate; at least I can't find a match on OCRE or wildwinds.com. For the obverse, the closest I can find on OCRE from the Treveri mint are numbers 324 and 407. Unfortunately the website doesn't provide photos, and neither are camp-gate reverse types. OCRE also doesn't appear to have any AE coins with four turrets from Treveri. Only 8 coins come up under the search "PROVIDEN-TIAE AVGG camp gate Treveri"; only one (476) is for Crispus, but that one has only two turrets, a star (missing on mine), Crispus facing left instead of right, with a different obverse legend. Outside of Treveri, RIC VII Arelate 270 is about the closest of all. At least, the accompanying photo is. The description calls for only two turrets whereas the photo has 4. But there is a star above, and the legend is wrong. Can anyone help me sort out this mess? I thought maybe it was a "mule", but I can't seem to find any reverse type that would fit. Is it a unique type? If so, how ought I to list it? Is there some way to have it assigned a number? Or maybe I'm just missing something obvious... Does anyone here own an actual copy of RIC they can look into? If so I'd be much obliged! I know that OCRE is not "official", and I'd like to describe/attribute this coin as closely as possible. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! 11 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
