Genuine? Likely.
Badly damaged reverse.

yeah i know still its pretty cool to have one that predated when he became "Augustus."

do you think Octavian coins are more sought after than Augustus( due to rarity, as well as being older?)

Rarity is a misunderstood term.
Rarity just implies what we have found of the millions of Roman coins out there. It is only rare until the next cache of coins is found.

As to sought after... Well, early emperors are always sought after.
