Decent fouree' denarius of a popular early Nero as Caesar type. Good weight for a fouree' with slight silvering remaining. Stylistically appears to have been struck by an official mint. Official mints sometimes "cheated" and produced fouree's to meet a production demand if they exhausted the allowed quota of silver.
