    Another new horseman for me. This time an earlyish issue that has passed me by thus far despite having bid on a few. This one has been heavily overcleaned but I am sure that it will tone down over the next decade or so.....

    Obv:- D N CONSTANTIVS P F AVG, pearl diademed, draped and cuirassed bust right
    Rev:- FEL TEMP RE-PARATIO, Helmeted soldier left, shield on left arm, spearing falling horseman; shield at ground to right. Horseman falls forward clutching his horse. He is bare headed

    That's a very pretty coin even without the patina! The horse is very nice.

    I don't mind bare metal on coins that are in really nice condition, such as yours. I think it looks great. Nice acquisition.
