    Nice selection. My favourite is the Vitellius bronze, with the pleasantly rubbed high spots and colouration.

    I'll vote for the veiled Constantine types. You have some nice examples there. I have two of them but they are not as nice as yours.

    I like them all but I will differ from the pack and say that the Ptolemy III is superb! Great strike, beautiful eagle, and the patina is gorgeous! I don't have a Ptolemy, or any Egyptian kings yet but I would love to add a nice hefty tetrobol like that to my collection.
    The rest of your coins are great as well! Thanks for sharing!

    Completing not one, but two 12 Caesars sets this year! That's what I call a good year. :D I love that JC portrait.

    12 Caesars in Bronze and Silver! Sounds like an excellent year. The Vitellius is a great one - I am also a fan of the 5 Divus Constantinus set. Best wishes for 2020.

    Man alive! You did well in 2019, completing those sets as well. The JC and Vitellius are exceptional. Let you in on a secret....I have yet to complete anything with coins, then again, I could not even get my Fall cleanup work done, since Winter arrived a month early:(
