Elusive Aurelian


Recommended Posts

I have looked through Wildwinds , Ocre and sold listings galore but a ref for this eludes me. The closest I can find with mintmark VI in exergue has the obverse legend with a C after IMP. This one is almost identicle but with no C after IMP. Any Aurelian collectors out there with some greater knowledge?
