Told you I was awful...
Obverse: IVL CRISPVS NOB C, laureate head right
Reverse: CAESARVM NOSTRORVM around VOT X in wreath
Mintmark BSIS sunburst
I like that mintmark! I've not yet seen a sunburst.
Reverse: CAESARVM NOSTRORVM (Our Caesar) within wreath, VOT X
@furryfrog02 beat me to the punch.
I do not know what was done to it but it appears to have been cleaned and coated.
Also the VOT X is a vow for 10 more years
I could not make heads or tails out of the letters. Thanks Again.
Thanks for the answer you gave and the coin for comparison. I will spend some time on reading the coins from now on. I also was not aware of different workshops for minting. Awesome coin you have there the devices are very sharp.

I have one with a G in front of SIS. I can't post a photo just yet as my camera is down. Any idea what that might be?
