The theme of this month's meeting is "Bad day at the Mint". We will be thinking about coins that have been badly struck or designed. 

I have a soft spot for these two coins. the upper coin in both photos is a Roman Provincial coin from Antioch. the portrait is about a third off the flan. 

The Byzantine coin is mishappen and not a great design. It maybe made from part of a flan or a very poor flan. There is something appealing in the simplicity of the figure.
