    Most likely it´s a fourree.

    I agree - likely a fourree that has been heavily cleaned.

    I think this may fall into the same category. Different ruler I guess. Acient Silver 1.jpg Ancient Silver 2.jpg Acient Silver closer.jpg

    FYI for any newbies, a fourree is a coin with a thin layer of silver covering a copper core. They were usually made by counterfeiters who would try to pass them off as legitimate silver denarii. The assumption is that they were more or less contemporary with the coins they are imitating.
