Mintmark.. Any best guesses..?

  1. I am stumped:

    #1 on making out this mintmark?? The closest I come is
    Mintmark TS Γ star. Wildwinds: Thessalonica RIC VIII 114, Γ, var
    http://dirtyoldcoins.com RIC 116v (VIII, Thessalonica)

    #2 finding an example of the symbol in left field??

    #3 Every example I have found shows lettering on the
    obverse left side of bust as such: "DN CONSTA" ...
    If you notice, my example has "DN CONSTAN" on the left of the bust??
    below, these are the only two obverse titles that begin with DN on
    all Constans coins...

    DN CONSTANS MAX AVG VSTVS
    DN CONSTANS PF AVG

    maybe i'm being to picky but both do not work on my coin...
    I have always had good luck when I pick the many brains here that
    know more than I, always open to new & interesting out of the box
    ideas... give me your best thoughts?

    Sincerely Steven

    Hi Steven!
    Actually, this is a coin of Constantius II! The legend reads DN CONSTANTIVS PF AVG. I’ll take a look at the mint mark but the photo seems to be a bit out of focus where we need clarity.

    Not sure on the mint mark... but it could be Constantinople... maybe CONS Gamma.

    The spreadsheets on this page are a ton of help to me. If you go down to the FEL TEMP REPARATIO link you’ll find a spreadsheet listing the 2000 some variations of these coins. The mark in the reverse field left is the Greek letter gamma.
