Obverse with R over E ?
Certainly on the heavier side at 6.23 grams and no doubt it weighed more when struck. The E in TERTIVS looks more like a small R, looking at the breaks in the letter theirs under metal in the gaps which suggest an R.
Its very possible its R over E and would be excellent to see a stronger earlier strike to compare to, Farthing grades fine.
