Thanks for the compliments, fellas (I always like to receive feedback)

Wow, quadrans ... you sure have a lot of sweet bull examples! (great coins)

Ummm, apparently my example is an R3

Reference: Originally stated as being an RIC VIII 316 
However => Doug Smith states => “You should continue to be happy to have that coin which is not bad as just a generic Julian bull but is really special as an R3 that seems actually to deserve that rating. RIC 313 (VIII Arles) variations”

That Boeotian overstrike is terrific, Steve!! You had some wonderful overstrikes in your collection.  One Republican overstrike in particular I regret, but I know it found a good home.

Thanks man ... yah, that coin is a winner, eh?

I love the "coin-flaws" => over-strikes, counter-stamps, banker's marks, etc ... it keeps the coins honest!
