Before they get any more stale, I'll toss out there a few more from the recent Robinson auction. As is my general practice, I do not offer these to help others get out of researching their similar coins but prefer to discuss what made them appeal to me enough to place a bid or what caused none of you to outbid me. Years ago I bought a rather worn coin of Vetranio of the HOC SIGNO VICTOR ERIS type. I always wanted to upgrade it and finally found a really good looking one at a price that seemed fair. On receipt and researching it online, I returned it for refund as a fake. It was a good fake but appeared in the fake reports. I had already sold the older, worn coin so I was left with no Vetranio. Frank offered this one of the other common AE2 type so I bid on it. It could have better reverse detail on the head but I find it quite acceptable. I still don't have the HOC SIGNO type. Maybe someday. Now I tend to be a little slower to sell off coins I upgrade. This coin of Thessalonika had the laurel wreath option. They alo come with a pearl diadem on the portrait. Next is a coin of Aurelian which Frank described quite accurately as far as I am concerned both for its faults and the reason I bid. The surface is not a particularly pleasing, dull mix of brown, 'hints' of green and 'vestiges' of silvering. The left facing portrait is special for being a lefty but I agree with Frank's observation. Don't look up lot 317 until you have tried to guess what we saw that is a bit 'different'. The question is whether the good features offset the confusing surfaces. Possibly, I like lefties.
