    I came across this coin described as Valerian, but could this be Balbinus?

    I looked like IMP C P L to me which would indicate Valerian.
    I also don't see a coin of Balbinus listed with that reverse.
    My bet is that they are correct with Valerian.

    My first impression was definitely Valerian, just based on portrait style.

    Compare legend with this:

    I see IMP C P L-- which points to our favorite stuffed friend.
