An incomplete, Roman, struck or hammered, copper alloy, brass, sestertius probably of Antoninus Pius (138-161AD). Obverse: Laureate bust right. Inscription: Illegible. Reverse: Possibly Victory alighting right. Inscription: Illegible. Mint name: Probably Rome. Reece Period: 7. Die axis: 12 o'clock. Very worn or fair condition but rather corroded with all the flan edges broken down and the coin only half its original size. However, an attractive green patina on most of the obverse and reverse. This is likely to date from 138-161AD. Ref. Coins of Engand and the UK, Spink 2014, page 67 No. possibly 643 and Roman Coins and their values II, David R. Sear, Spink 2002, page 221 No. possibly 4182. This coin is truncated length 26.62mm, truncated width 21.22mm, thickness 4.34mm, truncated diameter 26.62mm and weighs 9.6g.
