    Looks to be a Valens SECVRITAS REIPVBLICAE coin. Here's an ugly one of mine. These are quite common and not worth much. Sort of like Valens himself. But very much genuine.

    I think you have to do something about your picture standards if you hope to get accurate identification of all your coins, Sir.

    My guess is that this is the type:

    Valentinian I.jpg
    Valentinian I, AE3 Nummus, Siscia, A.D. 364 - A.D. 367

    Obverse: D N VALENTINI-ANVS P F AVG: Bust of Valentinian I, pearl-diademed, draped and cuirassed, right

    Reverse: SECVRITAS-REIPVBLICAE: Victory advancing left, holding wreath and palm.

    Mint mark: A (1st officinae) SISC

    Reference: RIC IX 7a Siscia


    Hard to say if it’s Valentinian or Valens though.

  7. On the reverse do you think there’s two letters . One either side of the person standing .I have geared they could mark a battle or different mint than London.might well not be letters at all .

    Here's a brief write-up I did for one of mine for the type.
