There is still a tiny bit of lustre around the devices and in the field behind the head, which is amazing for a 205 year old coin!

I have several coins that cost me more than this one did originally, but this is still my favourite I have owned it since 1993. It had just come in a penny board into a coin shop that I was visiting on a Saturday morning. There was a nearly complete set of cents from 1793-1857 in the board, only the 1799 and a couple of others were missing. Most of the dates after 1820 were uncs. I knew I could not buy the whole board, but I had to have something and this was it.

This is one of my favourite coins:-

 

Probus Antoninuanus

Obv:– VIRTVS PRO-BI AVG, Radiate, helmeted, cuirassed bust left, holding spear and shield, decorated with emperor riding past row of soldiers with shields

Rev:– ADVENTVS PROBI AVG, Emperor riding left, right hand raised, left holding sceptre; at foot, captive

Minted in Lugdunum (IIII) Emission 5 Officina 4. End A.D. 277 to Early A.D. 278

Ref:– Cohen 69. Bastien 256 (2 examples cited). RIC 64 Bust Type G.

Minted to commemorate the return of the Emperor through Lugdunum on his way to Rome after a successful campaign against the German tribes.

A crisp example with full silvering. The shield is decorated with the emperor on horseback riding past his troops with a raised hand.

These two are my favorites. The half may be scratched, but like the nickel came from my Grandparents.
