    This Galba arrived today, and thanks to a voucher from the auction house it cost me only 80 euros.
    And although its a well circulated one, I'm pretty pleased with it.

    Please show your Galba bronze coins, thanks.

    Great coin, and for only 80 euro. Most Galba bronzes are pretty scarce, 353.jpeg I managed to get an As with Ceres reverse a few years ago.

    You chose one of Galba's most interesting reverses, in my opinion.
    It is well circulated, but still has a clear outlined bust and reverse. Good price too!

    I was actively collecting Galbas's bronzes about 20 years ago, and managed
    to a few to my collection, all of which I have posted here already.

    Here is my Galba Wreath As.
    I found the As with Wreath/ SPQR/OB CivSer reverse quite difficult to find, more so than the sestertius.

    I have a Sestertius with LIBERTAS PVBLICA on the reverse:
