How I sit and think about it Edited But mostly I think about coins - and how freaking expensive they are. It was certainly a challenge for someone like me to assemble the four - if you are on a tight budget the only way (I found) was to be at once patient for a deal but also be ready to pounce when one arrives.... be flexible - not only for grade but for metal, for Imperial or Provincial. But you still have to find a coin you like - its challenging to say the least!! If you have deeper pockets you are probably able to sacrifice a little less - and good for you! Here is my ragtag assembly: GALBA - AE23, Syria, Antioch Mint OTHO: AE28, Syria, Antioch Mint VITELLIUS: denarius 18mm - Rome mint VESPASIAN: Sestertius, Rome Mint, 32mm It's August - the month the Danubian legions announce support of Vespasian (in Syria) and then invade Italy in September on his behalf... he would be officially installed as Emperor on December 21st, 69... bringing some much needed stability to the Empire. ------ Please share your coins featuring Emperors who ruled in 69AD..
