Denomination : Billon Antoninianus.  Mint : Cologne.

Date : AD 261.

Reference : RIC V part II, 349.  Sear-11049.

Size : 28.0 x 31.2 mm.  Weight : 25.45 grams.

Grade : gVF/VF with the typical weakness one expects due to these having been over struck on earlier coins.

Obverse : Radiate bust of Postumus right, with IMP C M CASS LAT POSTVMVS P F AVG around.  Parts of the inscription are difficult to read as they are over struck directly on the inscription of the earlier coin.

Reverse : Galley right, with LAETITIA AVG below.  The galley is clear but the inscriptions are weak.
