    Nice new acquisitions @ancient times . I have a bad and a good news for you. Let’s start by the bad one: your Aureolus is misattribute. The good one: in fact, your reverse legend reads CONCORD AEQVIT, which is from the first issue without the officinae letter and a lot scarcer ! Mairat 489, Cunetio 2472.

    Great coins. My favorite - Germanicus. I also like the Aelius.
    I also got some new faces in town recently, one already posted, as I wasn't sure about the correct attribution. Waiting for them to arrive.
