Late Roman Bronze coins / Interesting campgate variation
« Last post by tjaart on September 18, 2017, 04:17:51 PM »
Hi all,

I missed out on another interesting campgate yesterday. This one has a nice, wave-like decoration in the top layer. So far I've only seen dots in the top layer.

Seems to be a variant of RIC VII Constantinople 27. If anyone has an example such as this, I would be interested in it.

Hey that's cool, it's my rough campmate linked third on that "Not in RIC" page. I should provide a better photo... in any case it's 3.63 grams, bought from eBay 2/12/16 for about $3.50 with shipping... lucky buy!

I was anticipating a high price, but still a little surprised.

That is a very nice example! Unfortunately it just went a bit too high for me.

Hello,

I coundn´t resist when I saw it.

I hope you enyoy it.

Best regards, Ignacio Miño.
