    You don't see her everyday.

    I also have a Provincial won with a reasonable price, in the same auction with a Domitia - also cheap (but worse condition).

    My Agrippina II from Aizanis, a very decent coin

    Here are two of Agrippina Sr. mother of Caligula - sestertius and denarius both struck by Caligula...

    A sestertius of Agrippina Sr. struck by her brother in law, emperor Claudius....


    Agrippina II appears on the reverse of Caligula's sestertius depicting his three sisters.


    Agrippina iunior facing her son Nero on this denarius...


    and on the reverse of this denarius of her husband (and uncle) Claudius...

    Leave as is. It's in great condition, and a small amount of dirt helps to make the devices and legend pop.

    I still don't have an Agrippina II in my 160-strong ruler series yet. I'm looking for a nice imperial issue (denarius or sestertius).
