Note: This example is exceptionally well engraved. Although Year 8 of SB 532 is usually less blundered than all other years of the type, this piece has the remarkable officina mark on the obverse, legends are perfect and the style is quite fine.

Note: This coin has an excellent variant of the obverse legend for Tiberius II Constantine and appears to spell out his name completely. Also, the regnal year has the U on the bottom instead of the usual top position above the III. A coin most worthy of careful conservation and further study.
