https://www.cointalk.com/threads/maximinus-thrax.381866/ This coin of his son arrived today and rather than bury it at the end of that thread, I am starting a new one: Maximus, 235-238 Denarius. 21-19 mm. 2.59 grams. PRINC IVVENTVTIS (Prince of youth) Bare-headed bust right MAXIMVS CAES GERM, which tells us it is after the German victories of Maximinus RIC 3. "early A.D. 236 -- March-April 238" BMC (which is more recent and better for this reign than RIC) 211 (under Maximinus) plate 40 "issue 3, late 236-237". That photo was taken with my very old iPad. Here is the auction-house photo (Leu, web auction 16 , lot 3592): When I got the coin I was happy that the surface was not so "dry". I do not claim to be a good photographer of coins, but, in hand, the coin looks more like my photo with its slightly more metallic glint. Their photo was good, but with thousands of lots photographed for a single auction, some coins will be a bit better than their photos (and some worse).
