    Nice portrait. The pudicitia types of Herennia Etruscilla are by far the most common:

    Couple dirty looking places and a scar on her face, but I like it:

    By dirty looking places do you mean the toning? (Toward the perimeter, lower half of the coin on both sides?) If so, that's not dirt, but toning, which is generally considered a good thing.

    Ya, I know it's not dirt, but it looks dirty to me ;)

    Nice coins!

    This is a coin that I purchased back in the early 1990s at a local coin shop in San Jose, CA. I really wasn't looking for this type specifically, but just pawing through a box of mixed ancients. Since that purchase I've sold a good number of coins for various reasons but have kept this one because of the portrait, strike and grade.
