    Yes, not a rare coin at all. In fact it is very common as a type. However, I have been looking for the right one of these for at least a year. There are plenty available but when I saw this one the checklist was fulfilled. I wanted a great artistic portrait, a clear Corinthian helmet on the reverse, and clear complete legends. I hope you agree that it is yes on all fronts.

    Also I have added the vimeo video of the coin. If there are any objections I will take it down.
