Ancient Rome KAICA POC (of Ceasar)
If genuine, Brian, you have a valuable coin from ancient Rome about the time of Jesus Christ, 2000 years ago. Way cool! The inscription KAICA POC means of Ceasar and the LN is a coded date. There are counterfeits of these coins, but if real, they are valuable.
Typical examples of these coins sell retail from about $30 US dollars for a common, worn example, to over $1000 for a rare, well preserved one.
It is beyond our ken here at CoinQuest to accurately evaluate your coin. But there are many great web sites with many great experts who specialize in these fascinating pieces.
The picture on our page comes from one such expert, Brett Telford, who writes an interesting blog on ancients called One Coin at a Time and who also runs a respected ancients commercial site, SoCalCoins.com. Viewing Brett's sites will help you get an idea of the significance of your coin.
Remember, Brian, if you want to sell your coin to a coin dealer, he or she must make a profit in order to keep the dealership afloat. Figure an offer of about one-half retail for any coin you sell to a dealer.
