Hello all,

I've been collecting images of Severus's legionary series (except XIIII GEM M V and issues from the non-Rome mints) and I thought to share some simple findings for anyone interested.

I've looked at the British Museum, Wildwinds, Forvm past sales, Forvm member galleries, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (strange they don't have any), acsearch, CNG, Roma, romancoins.info, Vcoins, Doug's website hosted by Forvm and a few images which popped up on Google images. So far I've collected 188 unique images from the sources above.

If a coin was sold more than once then I've only kept one image. I'm sure there are sources I've missed out though.

The stuff below might not be of use unless I post images, but 188 is a big bunch and the images vary a lot in size and resolution. Plus the majority are not in my collection so I'm unsure if it's advisable.

One interesting thing I found is that die duplicates (coins sharing the same obverse and reverse) are quite common.

A, B C etc refers to the reverse type within the same legion. I tried looking for obverse die links but it's much harder than reverse die links.

I think rarity should not be commented on since new examples may turn up at any time. Think it's fair to say that some legions are scarcerthan others though. The largest issues after XIIII GEM M V are VIII AVG, IIII FL, and XI CL.
