Valerian II and Septimius - Ron C2's latest gallery coins

(1/30) > >>

Ron C2:
Good day everyone.  I'd like to introduce my modest Severan-era denarii gallery, which is actually pretty heavy on Septimius Severus coins, but has at least one example of almost all of the Severan era emperors and their wives (or will once I finish photographing the few I haven't gotten to yet). I don't have an Annia Faustina denarius example though (of which only 6 are known).  I own a few coins acquired here in the forum shop as well, some dating as far back as around 2005.

Here is the gallery link:

I've been collecting Severan era denarii on and off for about 20 years as of this gallery launch in February 2021 and hope to add more coins as time to photograph and post my coins permits.  I'm also still actively adding to my collection, so hopefully I can provide updates on a fairly regular basis.

Some of you may already have found the gallery over the last few weeks via my signature block, so I'll only mention my four latest additions to the gallery today as follows:

As members find my humble gallery, I'd be more than appreciative for feedback and suggestions on improving the gallery, its presentation, or just comments on the coins themselves.

Enodia:
A nice gallery Ron and very nicely presented. You have some fine examples in there, but I particulaarly like the Severus Alexander.
I always love the dedication that goes into specialty collections, and I look forward to watching yours grow.
Congratulations!

Thanks Peter! My modest collection is nowhere near as complete and impressive as many of the "household fixture" members here, but I'm proud of it nevertheless and put lots of effort into choosing and procuring my coins.  Some are in amazing condition, while others are compromises based on what I could locate owing to rarity or cost.  

One thing I will say, the cost of the coins I like has more than doubled since I began collecting, which does affect my rate of acquisition :)  And not for the better.  

Tough to say if that is appreciated value or depreciated fiat currency at play (!)

The Severus Alexander coin you mentioned was my first Forum purchase many years ago, if I recall.  I stretched to afford it at the time, but looking back, I stole it - lol.  I think Joe had graded it choice EF, but would have to go dig up the original slip to be certain.

Some nice addition, Ron,  +++

 Congratulation...


Joe/Q.
