This was one of those eBay orphans nobody wanted (for obvious reasons), but I had hankered for a half follis from Cyzicus with the big "K" serving as part of the mintmark. When it came in the mail I was pleasantly surprised at how large it was - here's the full attribution (green not noted):
Justinian I Æ Half Follis
Year 18 (544-545 A.D.)
DN IVSTINIANVS PP AVG, helmeted, cuirassed bust facing, holding cross on globe and shield, cross to right / Large K; cross above, ANNO left, XЧI/II right, Y/Z below.
SB 208; DOC 187a; MIBE 121.
(9.10 grams / 29 x 27 mm)
