    A.Pius denarius, 3.60 gr, and absolutely stunning coin of Julian Apostata, 9.5o gr, unclean piece, and not seen well on photo, but this coin is COMPLETELY SILVERED!

    I didn't either, but the stuff I don't know could fill a city full of libraries. ;)

    galba68, Both coins look great :D. Julian folles have always been pricey. I bought the coin pictured below 14 years ago.There are barely visible traces of silvering on the portrait but it is a strong strike :).

    Incredible silvered Bull. That’s very unusual and probably gives it a significant price premium.
