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!
Very nice!! It's easy to love the camp-gate series.....and the types of Constantine.
Another Constantine II campgate:
Constantine II as Caesar, AD 317-337
Roman AE3 Centenionalis; 3.86 gm; 18.2 mm
Heraclea, AD 327-329
Obv: CONSTANTINVS IVN NOB C, draped and cuirassed bust, right
Rev: PROVIDENT-IAE-CAESS, campgate with two turrets, no doors; star above. Dot left field; SMHЄ in exergue.
Refs: RIC 96; RCV 17241; Cohen 164
Here's one of his dad:
I like the campgate series...in 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.)
Here are the lame pics of bro's campgate:
Not quite sure if it's Constantine himself.
I need to learn how to take better pics with my iPhone.
Campgates are cool!
