Sear 62 is common. For more examples of Sear 62, mostly in lesser condition, see here.

The next one is probably an ancient imitation.

Sear 62 imitation

Justin I. Constantinople. Sear 62.
30-29 mm. 10.96 grams. 7:30.
Cross above head is clear, but the crossbar is not perpendicular.
The weight is low (most are 15 grams and up).
The die axis is unusual (most are clase to 6:00 and some near 12:00).
The bust is particularly crude.
The mintmark letters are more spread apart than usual.
All indications point to this being an ancient imitation.
 


The coins above have a distinct cross above the head. Others, such as the next variety of Sear 62, might be described by some as having something like a "cross at end of diadem." They merely have a distinct (almost, but not quite) perpendicular at the end of the diadem, which is not clearly a cross. For another example, see the last coin at the Sear 62 link.

Sear 63 =  Hahn 122, illustrated, plate 7. 40-nummia. 
Star to the left and cross to the right of M. Cross above. Officina number below. In ex: CON
Sear says "Sometimes with cross rising from in front of diadem" but Sear 63 is not illustrated. Hahn says "sometimes with cross".
DO 10 "cross rising from in front of diadem" which is not illustrated and only one example.

Sear 66. About Sear 66: Sear 162v for Justinian is very similar to Sear 66 = DO 13 which has "crecent outwards."  Neither is illustrated in Sear or DO (only one example with "very obscure" officina).
The Clark collection has two examples illustrated as "Sear 162 type variety" that have weak legends that might really be Sear 66 and belong here on this page. The example of Sear 66 illustated as Hahn 17 does not have have the cross in field associated with Justinian as Sear 161 type variety, so it seems they are more likely to be Justinian and I have tentatively attributed those pieces to Justinian.
 


Sear 68. Hahn 18 variety. 20-nummia.
Cross left of K, officina number to right.
Sear says "Sometimes with cross rising from in front of diadem." Sear 68 is not illustrated. 20-nummia.
Hahn 18 does not mention the cross and the two illustrations (Plate 6) do not illustrate it. DO 14, which neither mentions nor illustrates cross-above-head.

Sear 71. Hahn 24 variety.  10-nummia.
Stars either side of large I. Cross above. No officina number. In ex: CON
Sear says "Sometimes with cross rising from in front of diadem." Sear 71 is not illustrated. Hahn 24 does not mention a cross and Hahn 24 does not illustrate it (plate 6).
Sear 71 = DO 17,  which does not mention a cross-above-head and the coin chosen to illustrate DO 17 (from only two examples) is not in good enough condition to tell what is above the head.


Sear 71

Justin I. Constantinople. Sear 71.
 22-21 mm. 4.28 grams.
Barely a short perpendicular at the front of the diadem.
I do not consider this to be a cross, but illustrate it here anyway.
Note how Sear 19 of Anastasius sometimes has a clear cross and sometimes has a diadem end like this.

 

 

 


Sear 73 = Hahn 26 variety. DO 19c.2, illustrated, plate VIII.  5-nummia. 
Epsilon with pellets in upper and lower parts, officina number to right
Sear 73 mentions it has the same obverse as a Sear 60 which says "Sometimes with cross rising from in front of diadem." Sear 73 is not illustrated.
Hahn 26 does not mention a cross and Hahn 26 does not illustrate it. DO 19 is this type with two pellets but does not mention the cross, but DO 19c.2 (Δ) illustrates it with an example with a tiny and weak but clear cross.

Copper coins of Justin I from Antioch are Sear 100-111. This page has cross-above-head examples for Sear 100, 100v, 101, 103, 104, 108, and 110.

Is this a cross on globe?  I think not. I think the "globe" is just the dot at the end of the diadem.

An article by David Woods about this type of countermark appears in Greek, Roman, and Byzantine Studies, 55 (2015) 927-945. He thinks it may have been struck in 610 during the revolt of Heraclius to signal the change of government from Phocas to the Heraclii as consuls. This coin is Figure 2 in that article.

Sear 100 is common. Here is a page with additional examples.

 


Sear 100, type variety. Completley unlisted.
Crosses to the left and right of M. Smaller cross above with star below it. Officina number below M. In ex: ANTX.
Sear 100 is "Sometimes with cross above head," but not with star below the top cross on the reverse.

Sear 100

Justin I. Antioch. Sear 100 variety.
34-33 mm. 17.08 grams.
bold cross above head.

The star below the cross above the M is unlisted.

 

 

Sear 101 variety. Hahn 59 variety. 40-nummia.
Star to left and crescent upwards to right of M. Cross above. Officina number below. In ex: ANTX
Sear 101 is not illustrated. Sear does not mention the cross above head. Hahn 59 does not mention the cross and the two examples do not illustrate the cross (plate 10). DO 47, which neither mentions nor illustrates a cross-above-head.


Sear 101

Justin I. Antioch. Sear 101.
 32 mm. 16.09 grams.6:30.

Sear 101 is similar, but with crescent upwards; they are barely different.
Sear 103 is not illustrated. Sear does not mention the cross above head. Hahn 59 and 60 do not illustrate or menion the cross. Hahn 59 has the crescent opening right and Hahn 601 illustrates the crescent upwards (barely different). DO 49, which neither mentions nor illustrates a cross-above-head.


Sear 103

Justin I. Antioch. Sear 103.
 33-31 mm. 13.97 grams. 5:30.
Clear cross above head.
Officina A weak.

 

 

Sear 103
Justin I. Sear 103?
31 mm. 13.02 grams. 6:00.
Not a certain cross. The legend says
DNIVSTINV S PP AVG
and there may be a cross between the V and the S
(with its crossbar overlapping the top of the V).
There is, as in the photo, a vertical at the bottom of the lettering
between the V and the small and weak "S". Maybe that squiggle is not
the S and the vertical is part of a poorly executed S. The photo is good.
