    Now I can post my Caracalla as child denarius.

    Caracalla (as Caesar, 196-198) AR denarius. Rome
    M AVR ANTONINVS CAES - bareheaded and draped bust right
    Rev: SEVERI AVG PII FIL - Implements of the priesthood: Lituus, axe, jug, simpulum, and sprinkler

    RIC IV Caracalla 4.
    2,96 gr, 18 mm

    Incorrectly attributed by the auction house as RIC 6 with a different reverse legend and slightly different reverse. Not the most beautiful denarius out there but I wanted a Caracalla as a boy denarius for a while and as a bonus, his brother also was in the same lot - a Geta denarius.

    Next - a coin with a young ruler.

    The Kangxi Emperor was born in 1654 and began his reign in 1661. This piece is in awful condition but dates between Kangxi being 13 and 16 years old.

    More than once I've got to the end of a page thinking it was the last post only to realize there were multiple texts after. If you are referring to me, I have never blocked anyone.
