POSTUMUS AE dupondius/double sestertius. IMP C M CASS LAT POSTVMVS P F AVG, radiate, draped & cuirassed bust right, seen from front, some evidence of portrait undertype. Reverse - FELICITAS AVG, Felicitas standing left, holding long caduceus & cornucopia, an entirely redundant S C in fields (Postumus had no Senate and thus no need for Senatorial consent to issue fiat coinage). RIC 193, RCV 11037. 29mm, 16.7g.
 
Considering the flan shape and weight, this is probably overstruck on a sestertius from the contemporary period, IE Galllienus or Valerian.
