    Ok I couldn't hold back and bought another one ( all within a month)
    of these very different Eros-Amor (Roma) partially ligate mint mark coins.

    I did not even think I would win with my bid and had forgotten about
    it, until this morning when I received my invoice. Oh well really did not
    need it, I now have two Licinius II of the same type.
    I should have been looking for a Constantine or a Licinius I instead :(:confused:.

    The new one

    Licinius II, as Caesar, BI Nummus. Rome, AD 320. LICINIVS IVN NOB C, laureate, draped and cuirassed bust to right / ROMAE AETERNAE, Roma seated to right, inscribing X V in two lines in shield; R ЄѠC Q = RЄΡΩCQ (partially ligate) in exergue. RIC VII 199. 3.23g, 19mm, 7h.

    This series can sell high or low depending on how many people see and recognize the exergue. Licinius II is the one I lack. If I hade those two coins, I would keep both since the officinae are different. If you ever decide to specialize in these, you may have trouble replacing the one you sold.

    Nice pickup, @bcuda. I have a votive of Constantine II with this type of mint mark. I'd like to find one of Constantine I, too, for my CtG Collection.

    After many years of head-scratching, I finally learned how to print Greek letters in HTML. But how did you get ЄѠC to print?
