Help me to identify this coin


Recommended Posts

Left side: looks like a bust, rotated, with shoulder/cuirass at 7-8 o'clock position

Right side: big letter V (raised in incuse rectangle) at top, big letter R (raised in incuse rectangle) at bottom, unknown thing (prow of ship???) in middle.


This piece needs either a lot more cleaning, and looks rather weird/questionable.

Well, i found out that this is old Greece coin, and on the left side of the coin there is a head.



Ohhh it's Greek with a head :confus:


I have know clue, but here is a futzed-with version of your pic that shows something close to the features. Maybe this will help.
