I was mentioning my dog stealing my rags... Well at lunch I hear a crash and I find this waiting for me.

He's got one of my rags and my coin scrubbing toothbrush.   My dremel and electric toothbrush are laying on the kitchen floor.   He really just wants to help...

Man, that's a pretty cute dog ... hey, but don't let him smooth & tool your coins (that's unacceptable!)

Added 4 more coins to my gallery this morning. 3 I have had for a while and 1 new addition.

First off are three I purchased though Forum Auctions.

Marcus Aurelius with Salus Reverse.

and two Augustus coins with differing countermarks.

The new addition is a tiny gem from Lesbos.  It is only 7 mm and .2 g.  Tough one to get a photo of. May have to update when I get a good macro lens.

Getting caught up on some coins, and its been awhile since I have posted to my gallery.

This is a coin I fell in love with the when I first saw it and was able to get it.

A very nice Caracalla with Lion Reverse

Finally adding to my gallery again.  Seems like in the winter I get more free time.

These are a couple Campgates that I got in a lot back in June.  Just picked up 20 more Campgates from Forum today which I can't wait to add to my collection

First off a very nice condition Constantine from Thessalonica

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159046

and then a Constantius II from Rome

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159047

Just updated with photos in the post, remembering how to do this.

Filling in the gaps for coins that I have neglected posting

These two were purchased through the Forum Auctions.


The first I am not 100% sure of the full attribution though I feel I am pretty close.

This is a damaged Hadrian with Concordia reverse.  Even though it is damaged I did  like the portrait.

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159054


This one is a pretty rough Trebonianus Gallus (my first)  Though not in the best condition I do have a soft spot for any coins with lions on them.

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159053

Just updated with photos in the post

Just looking at the Constantius II Campgate again on my work computer and I am not 100% on the attributation.  It looks like on the obverse side there is a pretty clear S but I dont think there should be with the legend PROVIDEN-TIAE CAESS.  Maybe an overstrike?

I may have to pull this one and send it to identification for help now.

Still catching up ..

Two coins I picked up from a Savoca Coins auction earlier this spring.

First off a Vespasian with Victory reverse.  I loved the snakes in this one.

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159073

Keeping with my theme of animals is this coin from Troas with Alexandria

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-159072

I have come to realize I seem to have a soft spot for coins with animals.  If I ever find a Roman with a Golden Retriever ....

Love the Vespasian.  Mine is in very similar condition.  Reminiscent of the Eastern Cistophoric types and earlier Augustan quinarii.
