Denomination : Bronze denarius.  Mint : Rome.

Date : issue of AD 274-275.

Size : 17.0 x 18.2 mm.  Weight : 2.63 grams.

Reference : Sear-11710.  RIC V, part I, #6.

Grade : VF

Obverse : Head of Severina right, with SEVERINA AVG around (the tops of some letters are off the flan).

Reverse : Venus standing left holding a sceptre and small figure of Cupid, with VENVS FELIX around.

What is interesting about this specimen is that it exhibits traces of a silver plating, showing that these denarii were silver washed, just like the antoninianii.  I had not personally noted this on one before.
