Choice VF, beautiful bust. The exact attribution of this coin is debatable. Some would find it more properly is RIC 122, mint of Cologne. Others place it with RIC 67, Mainz or Trier (the 'Southern Mints”, right facing bust instead of left, of RIC). The bust being draped and cuirassed, perhaps Sear is closer. Regardless of this, it's acknowledged by all that the engraver was very talented and rendered very pleasing busts of the emperor.
