AUGUSTUS, 27 B.C.- A.D. 14. AV Aureus (7.96 gms), Lugdunum Mint, 8 B.C. NGC AU, Strike: 4/5 Surface: 3/5. RIC-198; Calico-174. Obverse: Laureate head right; Reverse: Caius Caesar, holding sword and shield, on horse galloping right; behind, aquila between two signa. Rather dazzling and brilliant, this impressive gold issue does exhibit some scattered marks and light off-centering to the reverse strike, but nevertheless is nearly free from any handling.
