From the Trausnitz Collection, acquired prior to 2007.

As is often the case with this series, the legends are fragmentary and somewhat ill-formed. On this variety, the reverse legend is often simply VICTORIA, VICTORIA A or VICTORIA AЧ, as here, and then is followed by the indictional date. The dates IB, IΓ, ΙΔ, ΙΕ, and A have been noted. On this example, if our reading is correct and the Ч is not simply a malformed numeral, there seems to be no indictional date present.
