Thank you for the kind words everyone, this is one of my favorite coins in my collection. Also... all the coins I have in my galleries on here are from my PERSONAL collection, I'm not a dealer or anything, just a collector who loves Ancient Roman coins of all types.
I always really liked the young portrait of Caracalla on this example. Also on 'wildwinds' the picture used as the only example of this type is actually a picture of my Exact coin. It must have been put up before I owned it
