Crispus.  Caesar, AD 317 to 326.

Denomination : AE 3.  Mint : SIS (Siscia).

Size : 17.6 x 18.5 mm   Weight : 3.08 grams.
 
Reference : Sear-3918 variety.

Grade :  gF

Reverse : VOT X in two lines within a wreath, with CAESARVM NOSTRORVM around, with the mint mark SIS with a spiked crescent to the right.

Obverse : An incuse copy of the reverse resulting from a Brockage strike error.

Brockages result when a coin sticks in one of the dies, and during the next strike the new coin recieves an incuse image of the exposed side of the struck coin.  While brockage strikes are not particularly rare on Roman coins, vitutually all Roman brockage strikes have an incuse image of the obverse.  This coin is a reverse brockage, and as such is extremely rare.
