Needless to say, they are all wonderful coins. However, given the dearth of medieval coins on these boards (a situation that is improving), the gros from Metz stands out. Stkp

The reverse of the Theodosius is fantastic. 

The Furia denarius is a great example of the complexity of this type.  The moneyer was clearly ambitious and sponsored an unusual and complex design, yet a perfect strike is an exception.
