    Here is one I have been working on for a few days. Our great grandchild number 23 was born while I was working on it. For other reasons, his middle name will be Victor. Coincidence? Anyway, I think I will send it to him.

    The parents and grandparents of these little people are discussing just that. I do everything I can to avoid them when the subject comes up.

    I don't have a double victory Constantius II, but I have a very rare single victory reverse.

    Great coins all and congrats @Inspector43 on the great grandchild! 23? That’s amazing!

    As for coins, I have a few of these in good condition but I’ll show you the ugly one because it’s more interesting. This is one of the rare, victories facing the same way reverse variations. Luckily rare sometimes comes cheap if it’s ugly too… $8 total.
