    I canceled the other counterfeit denarius and bought this one instead. s-l1600.jpg

    Good choice and a scarcer type too.

    Much better choice. Nice looking coin of a not so common type.

    Glad to hear you could cancel it in time! And congrats on the one you've posted here. Great coin type.

    Thanks. I got word back from the one place that they have canceled it, the other place said no problem they will do it on Monday. The one thing is the plated coin they said they put it in the description. Unless there is another place for a description I can not find any mention of it. I assume it was just a missed thing.

    You are right: They had it in the description on their own website but not on their VCoins listing (and all that counts is the listing where you ordered it).

    I've noticed then doing that before when selling on multiple platforms -- somehow they miss a section when copying & pasting the description. Their mistake.

    No big deal, they said they would refund on Monday. I will drop them a line about the issue on Vcoin. this could stop it from happening again.

    Wonderful coin and ex @The Meat man if I’m not mistaken?

    I enjoy owning coins from the collections of friends I’ve met online. I have a small sub-collection of such coins.

    Here is an Augustus, Ex JAZ.

    At some point I need to add one of the Aegypto Capta style Crocodile bronzes from the veteran colony at Nemausus. (A better one, that is.) For my captives collection. Great type.

    I've got some of the Caius & Lucius Denarii (though sadly I sold my best one). For now, my favorite Augustus portrait coin is on this Divus August Dupondius:

    Divus Augustus Dupondius ANS Huntington ED.jpg
    Roman Imperial. Gaius (Caligula), in the name of Divus Augustus, Æ Dupondius (29.5 mm, 16.57 g, 6h), Rome mint, 37-41 CE.
    Obv: DIVVS AVGVSTVS / S – C. Radiate head of Augustus left.
    Rev: CONSENSV · SENAT · ET · EQ · ORDIN · P · Q · R ·. Statue of Caligula (or Augustus?) seated left on curule chair, holding branch.
    Ref: RIC I 56 (Gaius); Cohen 87; BMC 88; MIR 11-5
    Prov: Ex Collections Archer Huntington (1870-1955), American Numismatic Society [Acc. No. 1001.1.22981] & Hispanic Society of America [same No.].

    Notes: There's a long running debate about whether the reverse (or obverse, also a debate!) figure seated on the curule is Augustus or Caligula. In my view, it's clearly Caligula.

    Indeed! :)
    Beautiful Nemausus coin. I actually got one recently, I'd say about Fair condition. I need to take pictures some time.
