Extremely rare with busts on both sides!

Found in Britain, fairly nice for these, with an excellent portrait. Barbarous coins were struck because of the coinage shortage (and for other reasons) in roughly the same time period as the originals. They probably saw only local circulation and the usage of the FEL TEMP RAPARATIO imitations did not extend beyond 358 AD, when the "soldier spearing horseman" type was discontinued.
