    I will preface this with this is not my find.
    A member on another forum that I frequent was searching rolls of cents when this popped up. She wasn't sure what it was and I helped her to ID it. She then kindly offered to send it to me since she knows that my son and I have started collecting ancients.
    Pretty cool find for a cent roll eh?

    Constantius II AE3.
    Minted: 341-346 AD.
    Obverse: D N CONSTANTIVS P F AVG, pearl-diademed head right

    Now THAT is not the typical CRH find! I wonder if anyone else on CT has found anything like this, or, as in your case, @furryfrog02, heard of one?

    Wow!

    Oldest CRH find *E*V*E*R !!!!

    Cool. I'm jealous. Kind of surprised that it was even close to the proper thickness/weight to be sorted with Lincoln cents, though.

    What do you guys think? Coin Star dump? If so should have been rejected.

    I asked and apparently it was a CWR. Possibly intentionally placed in there? Or somehow managed to make it into a change jar and tossed in roll when it was time to roll and take to the bank?

    Ah. CWR. I'm betting someone stuck it in there just to have some fun ;-)

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    @furryfrog02 See if you can determine the mint, officina and RIC attribution. That should be fun

    It's all there in my post. The mint is SMKZ. It was minted in Cyzicus. RIC VIII 48
