    I found this coin but there are no appraisers near me who have knowledge of ancient coins. Any idea what it could be? It weighs a little over 2g and is bronze.

    Not particularly rare or valuable, but almost certainly legitimate, and over 1,600 years old! Dating from a time of upheaval in the Roman Empire, with the Huns chasing the Goths out of their traditional lands in what is today northeastern Europe and into the eastern Roman Empire, causing reactions among the local citizens similar to some of the reactions to mass immigration that we see today in the U.S. and much of Western Europe. Not much of a numismatic investment, but as a historical artifact, priceless. Enjoy.
