I've been reading, so I missed the initial announcement. I'm humbled that my name was drawn. Thanks a million. I've sent a PM to @Brian Bucklan.
@Bing you lucky dog.

Rev: VICTORIA AVG, S C across field, Victory advancing left holding wreath and palm. RIC IV 126d; Cohen 117. Number 4 in white marking on obverse, apparently from an old collection.
Thats an interesting find!
At least they didn't do this to the coin... still trying to figure it out.
That's @Bingo !
@dougsmit even with the number 47 that is a nice coin. I have been looking at some pictures trying to find more information on the coin.
