    I stumbled across this Follis online and hadn't seen as decent a portrait of Christ on one of these types for the money, so I had it sent home. Mary has seen better days on the reverse, but it still has decent details around the area of wear.

    Very nice follis ! I like them. Your follis is one of the finest I have seen.

    My specimen is very far from that. But I like it for its patina.
