8.07.025.5   CONSTANTINVS P AVG   Bust B5 (left) with spread chlamys reverse type (20.5 x 20.5 mm 4.2 g 6h). Steve Thomas collection.

 

8.07.031  To be removed. This coin was noted in LMCC as needing confirmation. Lot 1285 (21 mm 3.10 g 6h) in this sale is noted as ‘CT 8.07.031 – this coin” complete with the Vecchi provenance. In fact the image shows that it is an example of the previous type 8.07.030, so 8.07.031 does not exist.

 

8.09.003 (2) An example of this type with the CLARITAS REIPVBLICE reverse legend variation(20 mm 3.3 g 12h). Phil Edmonds collection. This is from a different die than 8.09.002 (2) and the example mentioned in the footnote to 8.09.004. Therefore perhaps not a simple die cutting error. These were the first coins struck at London with this reverse legend so they may have been early examples where the instructions to the die cutters were unclear or wrong. A mistake corrected for later dies and issues.
