    Awesome new pickup, Deacon Ray!

    Camp gates are really cool. I think my brother has one, but I'd like to get one of my own someday.

    Keep up the great work! :cool:

    I like the campgate fact I collect them by variety. Here's one from Constantine II:

    Constantius II, AD 337-361.
    Æ Follis, 4g, 19mm, 12h; Cyzicus mint, 325-326.
    Obv.: FL IVL CONSTANTIVS NOB C; Laureate, draped, cuirassed bust left.
    Rev.: PROVIDEN-TIA CAESS; Campgate, two turrets, no doors, star above, eight stone layers // SMKS dot
    Ref.: RIC VII Cyzicus 38 (p. 649).
    Note: RIC says the laurel wreaths on this series all resemble pearl diadems. In fact, the wreath on this coin looks exactly like a pearl diadem, but on other examples, two leaves are found at the top of the headgear. This coin just seems to be missing the leaves that would signify a laurel wreath.)

    Not quite sure if it's Constantine himself.

    I need to learn how to take better pics with my iPhone. :confused:
