Ex S. Weintraub collection and Nelson Bunker Hunt, Sotheby’s New York (19.06.1990) and Leu 10 (1974), 84.
The legend R - XL reducta quadragesima Galliarum, celebrating Galba’s repeal of the 2 1/2 percent tax on goods enteriing Gaul in appreciation of the help which Gaul and Spain had lent him. According to Suetonius (Suetonius Vespasian., 16), that very tax was reimposed by Vespasian shortly thereafter. The statue which Roma holds has been variously described by the major references: RIC calls it Victory, which it cannot be, since the statue has no wings and is holding no wreath; ACG and BN identify the statue as Pax, but Pax is not usually portrayed standing on a globe and typically holds an olive branch and scepter; BMCRE and Cohen identify the statue as Fortuna, which makes the most sense, since Fortuna commonly holds a cornucopia and is depicted in the presence of a globe.

Good very fine
The style of the obv. recalls the very rare and interesting issues of the usurper Clodius Macer (April-October AD 68), cf. K. V. Hewitt, The Coinage of L. Clodius Macer, NC 1983. Clodius Macer was propraetor in Africa under Nero and revolted against the emperor in early 68. But he did not support Galba who defeated Nero at the same time in Spain. Macer was killed by Trebonius Garutianus under orders of Galba. Another detail is similar on both issues: with the abbreviation SC, both rebels did subordinate themselves to the Senate.
