    Looks like an authentic AE3 bronze of emperor Constans, 337-350 AD. Possibly from the Siscia mint.
    Reverse of coin is Constans standing left on galley, holding Phoenix on globe and labarum; Victory seated to right, steering.

    With such a low cost & common coin like that its highly unlikely you will ever be 'had'. Its always good to know what you buy before you buy it. This coin should only cost about $1 max.

    Dads thoughts:

    I have an observation to make on the Roman Coin posted by Coinhound1983. I believe it is a genuine (with slight edge damage) CENTENIONALIS of Emperor CONSTANTIUS II minted between the years 348-355. Year depends on weight, size and mint site.
    The obverse legend is DN CONSTAN-[TI]VS PF AVG with Diadem bust right. (It is not a CONSTANS as that emperor’s legend for this type of reverse is usually DN CONSTA-NS PF AVG). There is never a ‘V’ in Constans’ name part of the legend but as one of the other main legends often used (with a break between letters on left and right) was DN CONSTAN-S PF AVG - I can see how this coin may be taken to be that emperor.
    The Reverse is a [FEL TEMP] REPARATIO type of Emperor on galley with helmsman although I am not sure whether it is a VICTORY or a PHOENIX being held due to the cleaning – it will be one or the other. It could be a number of any mints as the Exergue line is not clear but many of this type were made in Siscia up to AD355.
    So a Sears(88) 4001 or 4002 referenced and relatively common type of Constantius II coin.

    Crusader, I'm looking at the photos and size of the coin more closely and I believe you are correct with your identification. Thanks for the correction.

    Cru'dad is correct, although I think if I had seen the post I would have got there.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Cru,
    I'm nearly convinced that your dad must be the Curator of the Coin Section of the British Museum.
    I stand (and bow) in awe at his ability to ID. You and your dad are great assets to this Forum.

    None of those are what I would consider encrusted, which would require electroloysis, so if the dirt doesn't come off with warm soapy water or spit then thats as good as you can hope for.
