    Great coins in this thread. Without Marcus Agrippa, I wonder if there would have been a Roman Empire? Would Octavian have ever become...

    Sorry! I had the same issue with both my Otacilia Severa Medallion and my Nero Claudius Drusus Sestertius. I gave up when the third example...

  6. Julius Germanicus liked Eduard's post in the thread Balbinus Sestertius.

    I like it too! Bit rough on reverse, but the bust still quite nice. But the color .....shouldn't it be nice and brassy looking? :):)

    Yes, Eduard :-) - but I have never seen a brassy looking Balbinus in my collector's life. I guess they ran out of pure Orichalcum at the...

  12. Julius Germanicus liked Severus Alexander's post in the thread Balbinus Sestertius.

    It'll do nicely. I think it's fine to buy something as a filler, until you get a chance to upgrade. (Which can be years!)

  13. Julius Germanicus liked Pishpash's post in the thread Balbinus Sestertius.

    My standards are way higher than my budget. I have to buy "lesser" coins and I am not miserable with them :D
