it looks pretty nice. Great pick ups.
What a provocative Aphrodite on the reverse of that coin!
What a charming little PRINCIPIA IVVENTVTIS of Crispus!
Just as nice. It's a bit over-cleaned for some peoples taste but I fell in love with it at first sight. I normally dont collect Republican as I am not drawn to silver, but this one is at 36mm and fits nicely with my love of sestertii.

Is it anonymous, or have identification on the reverse? I suspect some here might ID the coin from the obverse, but not me.

Yea, it's pretty decent:
