I'm always impressed with the incredible details that can survive on LR's.


Both sides are as described...... "Superb Extremely Fine." You can't stuff enough words into a grading for this coin.


Do you find these or do they find you?

I stumbled across it and realized I didn't have a Victoria Germ of Probus and that I would probably never find one much better so I grabbed it. I realize the new Frome hoard has quite a few Probus coins and I'll be curious as to whether and how this hoard will be disbursed. It looked like there was a lot of water and clay in that find site so I bet the bronze coins will be frequently very corroded. -c
