Favorite uncleaned found
« on: October 08, 2012, 12:26:15 PM »
This is my favorite uncleaned- a FELICITAS ROMANORVM from Valens. This coin was sitting in a pile with other Valens and Valentinian GLORIA ROMANORVM and SECURITAS REIPVBLICE coins until I noticed it was not quite the same as the others.

I am working on a Crispus BEATA TRANQ. from Trier that has a Medusa on the shield that has potential though. I will post a picture when I am finished with it.
