    I have acquired quite a few FTR Hut coins in the last few years. I have just added a barbarous imitation hut copying a Constans from Lugdunum.

    Constans - imitation copying RIC VIII Lugdunum 084

    Obv:- D N CONSTA-NS P F AVG, Pearl-diademed, draped, cuirassed bust left, globe in right hand
    Rev:- FEL TEMP REPAR-ATIO, Helmeted soldier, spear in left hand, advancing right, head left; with his right hand he leads a small bare-headed figure from a hut beneath a tree. The spear points up and to the right
    Cpoies a coin minted in Lugdunum, (// SLG), A.D. 348-350
    Reference:– Copies RIC VIII Lugdunum 84 (S)

    2.42 gms. 180 degrees. 19.34 mm

    Here is the coin type that it was copying.

    4.04 gms. 0 degrees. 20.89 mm

    The copy is a good attempt but the style is not quite good enough in either the devices or legends.

    That's a pretty good copy.
    I need to get me one of these FEL TEMP huts. I have plenty of horsemen but no huts.

    That's an interesting copy and great coin in general.

    My only hut.

    All of my coins have been found in lots of uncleaned coins. This is the only HUT I have found. The reverse is not too bad but I couldn't do anything with the obverse. Afraid too even touch it.

    Very cool imitations, @maridvnvm . At first I did not see it, then the odd shaped head, letters, and just overall look that I began to see it was "different to these untrained eyes.

    This is my only Hut, I got it because of your postings soe time ago...
