Thanks to a tip from David Atherton I picked up this little beauty that arrived today.

This is a coin that most collectors, including myself, thought was a regular Rome mint denarius.  In fact it comes from the mysterious Eastern "O" mint and is actually quite rare.  This one shares the same dies as David's example and Ted Buttrey has assigned it a new number for the RIC II.1 adenda as 1477A.

Thanks for the tip David!

Well, I bought a mid grade Tiberius tribute penny for a friend of mine.  The coin was held up in the post for several months and the seller refunded my money.  So I bought another Tiberius for my friend and of course the first one showed up the next day.  I resent money for the first coin and gave it to my friend.   Now I'm stuck with the second coin.  I'll probably end up selling it at some point since I already have a nice one.


Here's the one that just came:

This is the one I gave to my friend:

Ummm, having too many super-cool tribute pennies is a good predicament ... oh, and that was nice of you to buy your friend an example

Just a reminder...NumisWiki has a very informative Tribute Penny page and a number of interesting articles on the Tribute Penny.

I bought this coin almost exactly 2 years ago.  In hand the coin is incredible but the photo had "reflections" in the fields and it was on the dark side.   Here is the original picture:

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-135266

Today I managed to get a new pic.  While only subtly different, it gives a truer reflection of what the coin looks like in hand.  These subtle differences in lighting and other factors add up to make the coin more natural looking.

I'll give it a few weeks and then delete the original picture.

Picked up this one today.  Attributed incorrectly and listed as a common Minerva type, it's actually rated R2 in RIC.  Starting with this issue Domitian reduced the fineness of the silver to Neronian levels.  A nice coin!

Added a very rare 1/2 shekel from the Punic occupation of Southern Italy.  Chipped?  Yes.  But a wonderful strike and fantastic artistry.
