    Fine additions to your collection, DR. The Nero is fantastic, and my favorite, with the Vespasian denarius with porkers of various size a close second.

    I love it! Vespasian rules (literally), but the Bar Kochba is really a masterpiece.

    I don't study Judaean enough to appreciate team blue but team red is first rate. Best wishes for team yellow.

    Enviable additions to your collection! I love the Herod 8-prutot piece! It's outstandingly well-centered, well-struck and well-preserved for the issue. Same with the Bar Kochba grape leaves and palm tree.

    Of course, I drooled over the Nero portrait and the sow on the reverse of the Vespasian denarius.

    Hope 2019 is good for you both personally and numismatically.

    I really like the Bar Kochba coins, they are kind of hard to find and yours is in superb condition. One day I'll pick up a Bar Kochba shekel, if I am lucky.

    Bar Kochba - pretty gentle patina and the Nerva denarius are my favorites- along with the Augustus tet- 4-3BC. Feliz Navidad Deacon Ray and congrats on your honor in the church.

    Meryl Streep and I have the same reaction.

    This is a fantastic top ten list, Deacon Ray.

    Of course, I’m drawn to Judaea coins, especially Bar Kochba!

    The Vespasian pig denarius is grand!

    I can’t wait to see what #1 is!

    Great work!

    Very nice coins Deacon Ray. The Augustus tetradrachm and the Vespasian denarius are my favorites. That said, they are all great coins.
