    Found a few previously sold Titus denarii that received NGC's "fine style" designation. Do you agree that they are of fine style? I have seen some discussions where there is debate over the TPG's decision to merit a coin Fine Style. Even though it's largely subjective, it is interesting to see difference in opinions.

    Which of the below coins do you think is of the Finest Style?

    Look forward to hearing everyone's opinions.

    I think the obverses of #2 through #4 look to be "Fine Style" to me. Honestly #1 doesn't do much for me.

    I dunno, but #1 looks nicer than the one I used to own. Stylistically and gradewise.
