Thanks guys!  The patina on the Brettian in hand is amazing.  Hard to capture in a photo.

While contemporary denarii are generally easy to find, Vespasian bronzes issued after his deification are quite though to find.

I've been lucky to get a Sestertius a while ago, this is the first time I've seen the dupondius.

Congrats Jay!

I've always wanted this Domitian secular games denarius.  It's a nice change from the constant Minerva reverses he's so well known for:

Very pleasing in hand and beginning to develop a very nice dark toning.  Not nearly as banged up in hand as the picture suggests.

Took a while to get here but Titus finally arrived!  A rare left facing As with Genius on the reverse from 80-1 AD.  These Genius types are common for the later tetrarchs but not so much for the first century.  RIC rates it as (R) rare and they don't come up that often in trade.

Enjoy!

Forum has a great numiswiki article on genius

Holy crap! => dude, that coin is a total babe!! (congrats)

 Thumbs Up   Shocked   Thumbs Up

Jay, that coin has amazing eye-appeal ... the reverse is super-cool (oh and yah, it also has a left-facing portrait, which usually gives it a bit of an extra cha-ching!)

Kawhi may even crack a smile if he saw your new addition?

Well, here is a wonderful coin of Domitian with Mars reverse.  Holed in antiquity and probably plugged in the late 19th century, but I'm just guessing.  The provenance is simply amazing:

Ex-Manfred Olding 2019;
Ex-Sammlung Heynen;
Ex-Paul Schürer (1890-1976);
Ex-Fritz Reusing (1874-1956)

Comes with old tag probably from Heynen or Schürer. Olding tag incorrectly attributed to RIC 420 (different ending to legend)


http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-155767

I have another coin coming from this same old provenance collection.  I'll post it when it arrives.  I'm awaiting a copy of the 2019 auction catalog from Olding as well as the Sammlung Heynen catalog from 1976 so I can do some research on this amazing collection.  I know Andrew and David have also acquired coins from this collection so it will be a group effort.  It's also nice to know they are going to good homes!
