Hi folks,

That statement is true 98-99% of the time. Yes, Pekka is amazing. However, in this case, I don't think it applies.

This is actually an easy coin to identify. At least, it was for me. I recognized the type immediately, within a fraction of a second of looking at the photos, despite the fact that the reverse photo is upside-down.

The reason? I have the Augustus version of that type.

Would you have recognized the type immediately if you hadn't had a similar specimen?

Hi shanxi,

Good question. Smiley

Your question is actually about 50% of the way "there". In other words, about half of it is missing. I'll explain.

Coins of Augustus (both Imperial and Provincial) are one of my specialty areas of collecting. If I didn't have a similar specimen, I still may have immediately recognized this type simply because I am familiar the Augustus version of that type. You don't have to have an example of a type to be familiar with it, especially if it is in one of your specialty areas of collecting.

Now, if it was a situation where I didn't have a similar specimen and I wasn't familiar with the Augustus version of that type (both conditions true), then I may not have immediately recognized it.

That being stated, this is a distinctive and unique reverse type. I would assume that other Forum members also immediately recognized that type.

In my mind, this is an easy coin to identify. On a scale from 1 to 10, in terms of difficulty in identifying it, I'd rate this type a "2".

I feel that coins with generic reverse types are more difficult to identify.

Hi Meepzorp, I can see your point of view but I do not totally agre, mainly cause I would have sweard that this reverse was not a temple and anv shows no letter at all, so no way to start to look for it, again, my point of view.
For sure generic coins sometimes may be impossible to ID unless you have one or have seen it before, I mean eagle, tripod, horse...... But for example temple reverse, thereare hundreds of this reverse, but so many different features thay can help you finding out the right one

King regards
