Vierordt Collection (J. Schulman, 5 March 1923), lot 2068 ; H. C. Hoskier Collection (J. Hirsch XX, 13 November 1907).

You're hinting that I should have said 'Augustus ass'? All 'moneyers' asses' are of Augustus though; I just specified which moneyer had his name on it.

Not exactly.You did specify the name of the moneyer . I quote  " Turns out my most viewed is my Germanicus SIGNIS RECEPT DEVICTIS GERM, followed by a much nicer coin, my M Salvius Otho moneyers' ass." Which led me to ask if the III VIR AAAFF ass was on the obverse or reverse. Only joking  :D  you should have written AS.

Best pedigree is a nice addition to the stats.

Two old pedigree coins:



RRC 146/1 Autronia, ex collection of Algernon Percy, fourth Duke of Northumberland 1847-1865, as catalogued by Admiral Henry Smyth in 1856; this actual coin described, with confirmatory weight,  in the catalogue. A very rare coin type.



RRC 438/1, Servius Sulpicius, ex so-called Gonzaga collection, more likely d'Este collection, from 1500s or 1600s. The remnants of where there was a small eagle on an inlay stamp can be seen on the obverse in front of the face (the inlay having come off over time). I've considered replacing this coin with a better condition example, but there's no call for it as despite some honest wear the design is clear and the historical connections add value.

Text from CNG69
The silver eagle collector's mark found on the  obverse of this and a number of other Roman imperial coins has generated much speculation  regarding its owner. Originating with Cavedoni  (Atti e Memorie Accademia di Scienze, Lettere, ed  Arti [1825]), who based his assumptions on an earlier statement of Maffei and the vague  assertion of Eckhel, this mark was assigned to the d'Este family, a wealthy and powerful Renaissance  family from the Emilia-Romana region of Italy, whose badge included an eagle. Such an attribution contradicted earlier numismatists, including Spanheim (Dissertationes de praestantia et usu Numismatum antiquorum [1717]), who asserted it was the mark of the Gonzagas, the rulers of Mantua, a city with an important ancient Roman connection (it had been the poet Vergil's birthplace). In 1433, the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund granted Gian Francesco Gonzaga (1395-1444), the first Marquis, with the privilege of new coat-of-arms, which contained an imperial eagle badge. This device was included on the town's silver coinage for the next two centuries.

This ass is ,no doubt, on the reverse of the AS. But it appears that the moneyer Slavius Otho was not the owner of this type of ass.

This is an entertaining and educational thread.  I am going to spend quite a bit of time viewing my mates’ responses, but I wanted to join in the action:

"What is your most viewed coin?  Is it your favorite coin?  If not, which coin is your favorite?"
Q. Thermus M.f. - Minucia-19 (yes, it is my favorite)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-61678

"Which coin are your surprised has so few views?"
L. Postumia Albinus - Postumia-8 (I’m a little disappointed that this lovely coin hasn’t had more attention)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-65881

"Which coin have you paid the most to acquire?  (Don't tell us prices)"
I paid a little more than I budgeted for my Marc Antony-Legionary Denarius, but I’m happy.

I remember browsing your gallery and seeing this Augustus.  Again, I still think it is a superb coin and agree (and reconfirm) that it is the nicest coin in your collection!

I must agree.  A truly fantastic coin!  A 5-Star for sure, perhaps even a BOT (put it up and let us see)  ;)

The stats in this old thread are quite interesting, for example, quite often members' favourite or most viewed coins have no bearing at all on the coin's value, condition or even the member's main collecting focus.

Although it has been a couple of years since anyone added to this thread I just wondered if anyone else found it interesting and might update their old post or if any of the newer members might like to add their own gallery stats to it.

I find it interesting as well.  In my gallery the top three viewed have consistently been the following:

1st, The First 12
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-100059

2nd, Elagabalus aka Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus aka Varius Avitus Bassianus
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-91992

3rd, Galba
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-91050

Most comments:

1st place with 10 comments:

The First 12
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-100059

Tied for second place with 9 comments:

Vespasian with Titus as Caesar (4th most viewed)
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-98231

Vespasian Fourée
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-103021

Most expensive (although perhaps not most valuable) coin? I'm not 100% sure but I imagine it would be either:

Julius Caesar
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-89664

or

Judaea, First Revolt Shekel, Year 2
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-103765

And my favorite? Again, not really sure, but perhaps this denarius. I find the reverse hauntingly beautiful.

I would like to express thanks to Joe for hosting this site and making the gallery freely available for us. I always view my purchases from forum as not only adding great coins to my collection but also helping to keep my gallery up and running!

I see that this hasn't been posted on for almost 4 years, which is a pity, as it looks like a great topic! So, let's see if we can start it up again!  ;D +++

What is your most viewed coin? Is it your favorite coin?  If not, which coin is your favorite?

My most viewed coin is my unusual antoninianus of Valerian, with a left facing bust. I haven't seen many of these, so I suspect it is also my 'rarest' coin.
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-150784

However, this is not my favourite coin; my favourite either has to be my Mariniana antoninianus!
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-151852

Which coin are your surprised has so few views?

Probably my coins of Valerian II (15 views) or my Salonina (5 views). Both are in great shape!
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-151914
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-151913

Which coin have you paid the most to acquire?  (Don't tell us prices)
EASILY my Mariniana; it cost me more than 2 times my second most expensive - my Aemilian.
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-151852
https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-153135

Let's see if we can get this topic going again!  +++ +++
