    Hey everyone,

    Please check out my lots that are a part of the Heritage signature internet session starting at 1pm central time on Friday, November 6. All 3 coins are high-grade Roman solidi.

    1. Constantius II, as Augustus (AD 337-361). AV solidus (21mm, 4.56 gm, 6h). NGC Choice AU 5/5 - 3/5, Fine Style. Sirmium, AD 355-361. FL IVL CONSTAN-TIVS PERP AVG, pearl-diademed, helmeted, cuirassed bust of Constantius II facing, head slightly right, spear in right hand over shoulder, shield in left decorated with horseman motif / GLORIA-REI-PVBLICAE, Roma (on left), enthroned facing, spear in left hand, and Constantinopolis (on right), enthroned left, scepter in left hand, jointly holding between them with their right hands a shield inscribed VOT / XXXV / MVLT / XXXX; SIRM* in exergue.
