    Victor_Clark all my best friends are dead Romans Dealer

    In A.D. 312, after the defeat of Maxentius by Constantine, several coin types were issued from London to commemorate the victory and celebrate the freedom of Rome. These coins include these three with the same reverse, but different legends.

    @Victor_Clark , that is a special group and difficult to assemble. I have only the FELICITAS type:

    Goodness, one of them is hard enough to track down, never mind three varieties! Very nice.
