Thank you guys! I very much appreciate your feedback. I love this coin myself and recently got a very similar drachm from Caesarea, Cappadocia of his father, Septimius Severus, it's quite nice, but not nice enough for the 'Superb and Masterpiece Portrait' or 'BOT' gallery I don't think. But it's nice having father and son.... I really like these coins, and thank you all for such kind comments
