Seller's Note/ We rarely, if ever, cherry pick our uncleaned coins, but the reverse caught my eye as we'd never seen such for a Probus issue. This issue IS NOT listed in RIC with the radiate, draped, cuirassed bust right, hence the Alföldi 47-1 attribution. It's rare, kids, trust me. For cleaning, DW water soaks and time consuming scraping with a dull-bladed scalpel or metal dental tool. Not for shoemakers, please. If you have the time and skill, this will be a gem in your Probus book.
