Title: An Eternal As
Post by: David Atherton on July 08, 2019, 06:40:04 am
I recently acquired this fairly rare As featuring Aeternitas struck for Titus. http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-156423

There is more behind its meaning than meets the eye!

I really like these coins that have honest wear and yet still maintain a good portrait.  Very nice!

Thanks Jay. They are much more pleasurable to own than a smoothed and/or tooled EF specimen.

David, I never get tired of taking a sneak-peak at your As (congrats)

I agree with Jay => this cozy-worn coin is awesome on the eyes

Cheers
