Just German.  But with google and my German it was easy to understand.

No, I meant if your book was published in multiple languages?

Hi, Steve,

Thank you  ;) +++

The Habsburg issues are also interesting, especially early emissions (XVI-XVII centuries).
It is an interesting collection area, although it contains coins from the late Middle Ages and the New Age.
With a lot of interesting variations until the 1800s. After that, the coinage became very uniform.

Regards

 Joe

Z ostatniej aktualizacji trzy odmiany wprawdzie już wcześniej odnotowane, ale tym razem trafiły się naprawdę ładne egzemplarze:

Na początek niezbyt rzadki Konstantyn RIC VII SISCIA 82 nieodnotowana oficyna B, ale o taki piękny egzemplarz już bez porównania trudniej:



A to już nieco rzadszy Kryspus RIC VII ROME 180, nieodnotowana oficyna S. I znowu w takim stanie znacznie rzadszy, toteż i cena odpowiednia - 375 euro



I na koniec najrzadszy Maksencjusz RIC VI OSTIA 38, nieodnotowana oficyna Q. Przepiękny! I równie piękna cena - 1500 euro

Indeed Brennos,

Dionysos I mixed tin with bronze in his coins

Btw. refreshing my linguistic skills: Tin is in Greek κασσίτερος

BR

One of definition of bronze is an alloy mixture of copper and tin, sometimes with minor amounts of other elements. Not sure what it would mean to 'mix tin with bronze'...

Hi Curtis,

My Julia Paula coin is 29mm, 11.4g.  From its size I'm assuming it's a sestertius (a near-average sestertius size for this later period).

Here's an RPC link to the same coin...

Hi Ginolerhino,

My Claudius II is 25mm, 7.4g.  Yes, this is quite light for a sestertius.  This was at the very end of the sestertius period when they were much smaller.

I've ID'd my Claudius II as a "Double Sestertius" from this link (which is also the same size as mine)...

As I misinformed?  The Forums people here are most knowledgeable, as such I invite your continued comments!
