I mean, all your finds are "wow", but this is a wow among wows.
Wonder when you're going to turn over a chunk of sod and see a Pertinax aureus lying there, twinkling in the sun...
Thanks, LM..I hope soon..
I may have to walk back my statement that my coin was minted in Viminacium, which was in the seller's description, and is how Wildwinds describes it: Sear suggests that this type was minted in Rome, even though the mintmark "V" sometimes appears on the reverse in the right field. Which it doesn't here. Or on the coin shown in Wildwinds, for that matter.
