I think the problem here is that there is some shifted doubling obscuring the legend below and up into the date area.

Note how the apparent "I" in DEI looks to actually be struck over a "G". Then further up, it looks the dominant "6" is punched over a preexisting 6 that was slightly further down. The relative spacing is a bit off compared to the I over G... but that could be from die bounce?

Following, I think that "last digit" is actually the last digit from the 2nd strike mushed over into the ornament from the 1st strike. Note too how the circle under the crown clearly shows doubling.

BTW, looking at some of my pics... Sedwick's Auction #7, Lot 887 is, I "THINK", an exact die match to this piece for the monogram side - note the perfectly matching assayer F mark :

Respected Byzantinists, any thoughts on whether this is the coin from the Ratto sale, lot 314 (also cited in the DOC catalogue)? Same dies, the flan and condition are very similar, but the edges of the Ratto's photo seem to be affected cutting before publishing.

Very rare indeed

Esta moneda es falsa, se trata de una moderna falsificación bastante bien lograda. La moneda no fue vendida pues nos dimos cuenta a tiempo del engaño. En nuestra subasta de 12-12-2013 pueden apreciar un magnífico ejemplar de esta singular moneda. José A. Herrero.

This is actually a "staff and feather" series denarius, Crawford 130/1

A later cast copy. See Fehlmann/Kraut/Schaffner/Matzke "A'll antica, Die Paduaner und die Faszination der Antike", Battenberg Verlag, page 202, nr II.31.I.
Same dies (!), same markings (for instance the pit right to the M in the reverse legend).

1610/09/Dei Gratia. The “4” is simply the stop (*) Star that F used on his coinage. As well, in the Banco de Mexico collection there is a 1610/09/ DEI GRATIA issue that is nearly identical...Can also note the F is made larger with an I to cover up another small star.
Sedwick (Augi) Couldn’t convince me this is 1614....because it’s not....and it seems the previous owner also figured this out, which is why it’s up for sale again.
Also a shame Auctioneers have such pull with TPGs to get what they want put on slabs.....

this coin illustrated as number 287d in C-F.Zschucke "Die Grossfollisprägung in Trier während der 1. Tetrarchie von 294-305", Trierer Petermännchen, 2000. Obviously Zschucke knew this coin only from picture because he misinterpreted the mintmark sign: he classified it IITR instead of ATR. Anyway, this coin is indeed apparently unique and should be classified as number 280Ad in the exceptional catalogue from Zschucke.

There is an error in the auction listed. This is an 1812 not an 1810.
