I have been looking for a while for a sestertius of Nerva to expand my small collection of Bronzes of this emperor. This one appealed to me. This example of RIC 80 shows hands clasped on reverse holding a legionary eagle set on galleys prow (not visible on this example). This motif refers to harmony between the Senate, the Roman Army and the Navy on the occasion of Nerva's adoption of M. Ulpius Trajanus as his heir. Nerva. AD 96-98. Æ Sestertius (22.22 g). Rome mint. Struck AD 97. Obv: IMP NERVA CAES AVG P M TR P COS III P P, laureate head right Rev: CONCORDIA EXERCITVVM, S C across lower field, clasped right hands, holding aquila set on prow. RIC II 80 The coin has been smoothed (but acceptably, imo) and is struck slightly off-center, with lightly raised rims visible on parts of the obverse and corresponding area of the reverse (as though lightly hammered). Not in top shape, obviously, but enough remaining detail, and pleasant deep emerald green patina. Your opinions are greatly welcome! And... please post your coins of Nerva! - an Emperor we do not see too often on the forum.
