This is my third coin from last weekend’s coin hunt. I don’t normally go after Roman coins but this nice Republic spoke to me through the dealer’s glass case. Both the coin & the price were attractive. I'd like to learn why Victory is seated rather than the normal standing/flying/crowning postures. Gaze away from the photos as the extremely sharp details might cut your eyes. Roman Republic M. Cato AR Quinarius ca. 89 B.C. 2.25 grams Obv: Liber right Rev: Victory seated Grade: Pretty much as originally struck FDC(?). NGC label states MS with 5/5 strike and 4/5 surface. Other: Relatively common RR in unusually high grade of preservation. Gaze away as the extremely sharp details might cut your eyes. Please show your examples! Do you have something that looks today like it did the day it was struck? Do you have a seated Victory or maybe M.Cato or a Quinarius? Please post ‘em if you got ‘em.
