    These just arrived from the recent NSB Auction through Biddr (did anyone else bid on this auction?).

    1. Marcus Aurelius as Caesar denarius. Assuming that the reverse reads as COS II I believe it may be from 145 CE when Marcus was only 24. First coin of the Five Good Emperors for my collection.

    Does anyone else have coins of young emperors to show? (Or coins minted for younger men yet to be emperors?).
