    My favourite and most expensive is the first coin, the cast As.
    The Galba As is an upgrade for my 12 Caesar set in bronze.
    Please tell me which one is your favorite of these 10 coins, thanks P1150665 (4) Aes grave no price.JPG Persia Sigloi (5).JPG Cleopatra I.jpg Thessaly cart Apollo.jpg JC 2  Byzantium Justinian  II &Sophia 565-578BC (2).jpg JC 3 Tiberius Constantine 574-582.jpg Galba As Ceres.jpg P1170980 best (2).JPG P1140689 best.JPG P1170772 SOL XX (2).jpg

    Great post, @Andres2 ! The Antioch Trajan with the excellent Heracles portrait on the reverse is my favorite.

    Wow what a year @Andres2 ! My favorites;
    • #1 - As Grave - No need to explain this one. It’s just a great and interesting coin!
    • #7 - Galba As - Nice upgrade! The reverse is nice.
    • #8 - Trajan tet - Excellent style on both Trajan and Melkart. Great coin. This is the type of coin that really looks great in hand. Here is mine;

    I would have voted for the Aes grave As, but 227 gr is too heavy, I can't hold it :)
    Hence my choice of that one.
    A nice selection for sure

    Without a doubt, the Janus Aes Grave As. That's one of my dream coins. A very nice example.

    Andres, The huge Aes Grave is my favorite too :happy:. Both sides of the coin have excellent detail & an attractive patina. My 2nd favorite would be the Justin II & Sophia 40 nummi coin :D, great detail on this one too. My 3rd favorite would be the handsome double denarius of Caracalla :cool:.

    A very nice 2021 haul with great coins, @Andres.:)

    I agree; that Republican as is a great coin! Nice patina too. I also like the Trajan tet, the Krannon krater on cart...In short, I like them all!

    Happy hunting in '22!

    Your heavy Galba As is nice. Your Trajan-Melqart is also my favorite.

    Very nice group! I especially like the Trajan tet, the late Caracalla ant., and of course the giant Aes grave.

    Wonderful coins! Hard to pick my favorites, but I'd have to say the Aes Grave, the Cleopatra, the Galba, and the Trajan/Melqart.

    Difficult to choose favorite coins with this selection. Congratulations.
    I would pick the Galba, the Trajan with his father and the Trajan with Melqart.

    Excellent, @Andres2 . For me, the First Four. But I also like Antioch Trajan. Generally, I have always enjoyed your coins as we have similar Ancient collecting taste.
