I got this from my grandfather years ago. He had a story about parachuting into Europe during WWII and finding this coin, but he was the type to tell tall tales. After a long search, I found it to be
HADRIAN AE SESTERTIUS - PIETAS AVG
Hadrian AE Sestertius. Rome, 134-138 AD. HADRIANVS AVGVSTVS, laureate and draped bust r. / PIETAS AVG S-C, Pietas stg. l., hands raised, altar to l., stork to r. RIC 771f.
What an awesome piece of history to hold something that was made in 134 AD! I am keeping this for my future grandchildren to pass on!
