New CLARITAS Coin

A new CLARITAS reverse of Constantine has recently come to light. It is from the rare S over star issue and has the obverse legend CONSTANTINVS P F AVG as opposed to the already known CLARITAS obverse legend of CONSTANTINVS P AVG of which I know of four examples.

This new coin was found by a detectorist in Sutton Scotney, Hampshire, here in the UK and was posted on the FORVM discussion board earlier this month. It has not yet been possible to compare reverse dies.
