. So I will file this coin under Eastern Roman Empire....even if it was struck after the collapse of the west. It's probably nothing special to most of you, and it does have some condition issues if I'm honest....but I still like it and I'm glad to have it. My budget was already blown to oblivion to fund my upcoming trip to Europe, but I just had to have this. Probably my last purchase of 2019 due to the future expenses of my trip to Switzerland, Spain, and Germany, but I'm not complaining. This is a nice coin to wrap an an excellent 2019 coin hunting season for me....one which has resulted in the acquisition of some of the most beautiful coins in my entire collection.
