My whole collection comprises merely ca. 100 Roman coins. I mainly collect nice portraits of Roman emperors as well as rare emperors, types and nominals.
My favorite emperors are Carausius, Allectus and Trebonianus Gallus.
Just recently I focus on sestertii with beautiful portraits as you can see in my gallery.

Comments on my coins are appreciated Smiley

Very nice gallery kc. I have enjoyed looking at it. The Carausius denarius is interesting, there must be several scenarios as to why it has been chiselled in half.

My favourite portrait is Balbinus'. The fine patina accentuates the details of Balbinus' portrait. I like that one.

Hi Bud,

I like the heaviness of the coin. With 6.23g it is a real heavy weight.




Problem: I have put a new coin in my gallery and the links above do not show the coins they normally should because all coins have rotated.

I have just added a nice Carausius Antoninian with full planchet. It is in perfect condition and has some silvering.
Besides it is a rare type which is not listed in RIC.

Great patina on Gordianus!

Andreas (or anyone else),

What can you tell me about Postumus' radiate crown other than the fact that it was applied later? Is this ancient?

p.s 3 beautiful portraits! Kudos!

When I first viewed the coin my immediate thought was that the specimen was ‘redenominated’, but I hesitated to weigh in because I couldn’t back my opinion with any facts. Very interesting indeed; so what may seem, to the uneducated eye, to be a 'mutilated' coin is in fact a very interesting piece of monetary history.  This should give one pause when examining a coin that seems to have been damaged (counter stamp? bankers' mark? re-valued? emperor's image or a deity defaced?)

I agree with Bud, very interesting!!!

I knew about countermarks sometimes used to revalue older coins, but I never knew about adding a radiate design to achieve this. Fascinating!

And I thought it was a badly tooled coin Embarrassed
