Photobucket is so awful nowadays that it's time to bring these pictures over here, I think, for archiving purposes. This was my very first (novice) collection of Romans, started in 2007 and forced into selloff in 2008 when I got laid off in the recession. So it was a fairly short-lived endeavor, lasting only a little over a year. My goal was to get as many different portraits/persons as possible, in an "A to Z" (Augustus to Zeno) collection. My newfound enthusiasm for ancients burned hot indeed, and I was grabbing them up right and left. By the end, I believe I had over 100 different emperors and empresses. My primary goal was a decent portrait, and secondary criterion was as clear a name as possible in the obverse legends. I did not pay as much attention to exotic or interesting reverse designs yet at that time. I bought a lot from Steve McBride at Incitatus Coins, Marc at Ancient Imports, a few from FORVM, and got some from @Aethelred, my oldest numismatic friend. Mostly they came from VCoins dealers. I did not yet trust myself on eBay much (but made an exception for a plate-coin pedigreed Pupienus sestertius which I've sadly lost the pictures of). The last coin was a Zeno solidus from the Eliasberg Collection, which also doubled as the centerpiece of my trademark "Holey Gold Hat", since it was a holed piece. I'll just make this thread an image dump, for the heck of it. Unfortunately, I lost some of the pictures in a simultaneous double-whammy of hard drive crashes on two separate computers. But here are the rest, mostly salvaged seller pics.
