    Hey everyone,

    Just thought I'd commemorate my first year as a member of CT! :D

    As a relatively new collector, CT has been an invaluable resource. I have enjoyed getting to know you all, seeing your collections and learning from you.

    Here are two coins I haven't shared before, denarii of Julia Mamaea and Maximinus I. Both coins are graded MS by NGC...They are extraordinarily beautiful in hand. Unfortunately, my photographs don't seem to capture their lustrous surfaces very well. I am not the best photographer :( !!! Anyways here they are!!

    Congrats on the year! You post some great stuff.
    I think your photos are great.. but maybe crop so they're a bit larger for my old eyes!

    More coin, less background..

    kind of like "more Cowbell!!"

    Thanks @Romancollector ! Always great posts. No critique on photos.

    I have to redo all of mine. I said it in another thread, but I am thinking of graduating from my iPhone to a Polaroid Instant that you can get at yard-sales. Nice thing is that they will appear right before your eyes! Amazing about modern technology!

    We overdo Roman Empire here, so I thought I would add a little variety, outside the Roman and Greek World...

    She was the Hunting Goddess of the Kolchis / Colchis area (think Jason and the Golden Fleece). She was described as a beautiful nude woman with golden hair and glowing skin...
