    Nice! (Wish mine was silver). But as is mine is a heavy lugger. I always liked trajan dec. What a bad@$$! He and his boy, Herennius, died in battle together. #dadgoals. Reportedly the enemy just used some of these sestertius as projectiles. Jk. But they are large and in charge. Here's mine of the man with a saweet Moesia bull lion reverse...

    It’s definitely not a typical TD portrait, but I really love the execution and quality of it.

    My Decius is the same ADVENTVS as the above coin, so I won't take up space posting another one, but here's my Herennia Etruscilla:

    I need to take proper photos but here’s my only Trajan Decius - VBERITAS just picked it up at the Marietta coin show in Feb.

    You got my hopes up expecting to see TRA DEC's. Here are a couple of TRA DEC's. There was a time they were assigned to a branch mint but someone found a die link showing them to be Rome mint.

    I didn't know that about the branch mint assignation. Thanks for the info.

    RIC page 124 (vol IV part 3) assigns TRA DEC to Milan along with the TRA DECIVS coins. My only TRA DECIVS is harder to read from being overstruck on a Geta denarius.
