This presentation of a bearded figure on the reverse is almost undoubtedly Septimius Severus; the portrait of Caracalla being youthful and without facial hair on the obverse. The addition of a prominent eagle on the tip of the scepter is also quite interesting. This coin grades on the better side of VF and has an attractive green patina!
