Thank you so much for the info. I was unsure and the more I looked with my magnifier the more the legend
was not matching. My biggest concern was the striking flaw, during my studies of fakes
, etc, i know it can be a red
flag so more than anything it is good to know it is just a blacksmith error. I was hoping for Drusus
due to the rarity
but I will take Germanicus
as well. Anything in the large AE Imperial era I am a big fan of. It is fascinating to read the story of the earlier emperors from Augustus
up to the Severan Period
. One can only take so much of the corrupt Constantine
and infamous Council at Nicaea period. So when I can aquire coins from my personal time period I consider my "collector's choice
Glory Of Rome
" I enjoy the learning much more. There are some equally disturbing stories about those emperors as well as some good ones too. History
one never knows until they research.
Again, short version, thank you so much for the help
. Always appreciated.
