    So I bought these lot of denari from a guy off of Reddit a couple of months ago, which I only got now.
    Winged ROMA, METELLVS•Q•F around Macedonian shield with the head of the elephant, with chopmarks. 127 BC. I really like how these coins feature Roma as a combination of 3d and 2d bust!

    This coin is what I assume to be the denarius of Appius Claudius Pulcher, T Manlius Mancius and Q. Urbinius, With Victory in Triga. (I can see a faint T and M under the legs of the lettering APCLTMANLQVR) 110 BC.

    This is a Pansa/Vibius coin with Apollo and Minerva in Quadriga, 90 BC. However, the legends on both the obv and rev totally went out of the flan!

    Wow, nice...they have the "look"! I've always thought chop marks were an endearing quality on most coins. ;)

    I bought this modest worn Livineius Regulus, because of gladiatorial scene:

    Looks like the most crystallised coin I’ve ever seen!

    Probably, it is 17 mm diameter, 3.2 gr weight, low-cost.

    Great coins that were in circulation many years. It is fun to think of the events around well worn coins.
