    You say "decently nice"; CNG called it "one of the finest known specimens". The difference between those two descriptions seems to be $50k.

    What a fantastic coincidence, I got one too. I guess I'm in good company.

    Thanks everybody - lots of great discussion on this thread and some fine examples, particularly the unaffordable jugate bust type.

    Thank you. I've had that one for a long time and I would like to get a couple more as good. But, as always, other collecting interests keep getting in the way.

    CARAUSIUS & ALLECTUS, The British Usurpers, P. J. Casey, Yale University Press, 1994.

    I would appreciate comments from anyone who owns and uses this book regarding its usefulness and value as a research tool. Particularly Chapter 5, The Ideology of Carausian and Allectan Coin Types and Chapter 6, The Evidence of the Coinage. Thank you.

    That would be pretty much like my guess - at least 75% - and also not based on any documented evidence.
