  1. I had never seen that one before. Of course, I know little of these, but it is interesting that that was the first living person on Rome's coins.
  2. This is a great thing to have happen-to cement what your instinct told you in the first place. A great lesson. Thanks for sharing!
  3. Yes, I think what you describe is what really stands out to me. Just the CAESAR. Very cool coin. Thanks for sharing!
  4. I love album collecting. It is, at least right now, the primary way I collect.
  5. I can see why it is a favorite. I don't own any ancients. But so sometimes I see one that really hits me as special, and this is one. Is the CAESAR across the obverse a common feature?
  6. It sounds like you made a great purchase!!!!
  7. Fascinating! You say this coin is extremely rare. Can you put that in context for me?
  8. I tried to read this yesterday, but kept getting an error on all the journals. Thank you for including how your perspective changed from one day to the next. That is important to remember. I am glad to hear the family is doing well.!
  9. Beautiful coin! The text really brings it to life. Thanks!
  10. That looks fantastic! I was born in 76 so it was a good year for me too. Congratulations!
  11. It looks like that group is closed, but if you can get a picture up here that will be great. Either way, congratulations on your achievement!!
  12. Congratulations on some great finds! Thanks for sharing!
  13. Despite the fact that I do not own any "ancient" coins, I find all history fascinating. I appreciate you posting this. I did not know any of his history. As I read the part about him falling off his horse , I wondered if there was anything nefarious involved- though I assume not. Very good write-up. Thanks!
  14. Thank you for that very interesting historical write-up.
