05 Claudius RIC I 64
Claudius. 41-54 A.D. Rome Mint 51-2 A.D. (3.32g, 18.4m, 0h). Obv: [TI CLA]VD CAESAR AVG PM TR P XI IMP P P C[OS V], laureate head right. Rev: SPQR/PP/OBCS in three lines in oak wreath. RIC I 64. RSC 96.

Claudius was put on the throne by the Praetorian Guard after the murder of Caligula, and was eventually murdered by Neros mother. This is a worn coin and common reverse during Claudius reign, but I wanted to obtain it as denarii of Claudius seem few and far between, second only to Gaius in the 12 Caesar series it seems.

Ahh yes, I remember this when it showed up in in the 'new items' section of the Incitatus store earlier this year. I wondered who was lucky enough to own it. Cheers!

I like the SPQR inscription on the reverse. I don't see many coins with it.
