Bump! In case anyone can help Jerry.
Where did you find it? Or was it purchased?
Almost looks to good to be ancient.

Exactly, but I am thinking his new job must be keeping him busier than a one armed "paper hanger" at a counterfeiters convention. widegrin

This looks like a copy and sometimes they're cast and you can see this along the rim.

First coin on this thread looks "like":
RPC I 4189/4190
NERO, 13 October 54 - 9 June 68 A.D.
Antioch (Antakya, Turkey) mint, 63 A.D.
obverse NEPΩN KAIΣAP Σ−EBAΣTOY, laureate bust right wearing aegis, no pellet below
reverse ETOYΣ - BIP•I (year 112 of Caesarian era, regnal year 10), eagle standing right on thunderbolt, pellet and palm branch right

I say "like" because it is in great shape and I don't have another photo to make better comparisons. Especially on the legends where modern characters may be substituted.
The lower coin is similar, but missing the pellet to the right of the eagle, number of dots in aegis, and the obverse text are different, but the second half of the obverse legend is the same.

This one doesn't have the pellet to the right of the eagle
