IVLIA MAESA AVG, draped bust of Julia Maesa right, seen from front, hair brushed in straight lines and bound in small chignon at back of head / As obverse, incuse and reversed. RIC -. Extremely rare as a brockage. A brockage is a mint error that occurs when a coin becomes stuck in the obverse or reverse die, thus becoming the corresponding "die" for the next coin struck. The result is a coin with one side in proper relief, but the other side bearing the identical image, only reversed and incuse.HID05401242017
