    This is a sestertius that my father-in-law left to me. Nothing uncommon, but nice enough to my taste.

    chrsmat71 I LIKE TURTLES!

    I only have this one AP coin....I'm way under Piused! I actual do have another but I can't find my pics, it's pretty darn rough any way.


    Here's an overcleaned denarius. Yikes< i must have been drunk when I painted that background. I never notice these are bad until I post them on cointalk! LOL!
