  5. These are two coins of Constantius II I bought recently , the Phoenix type from Alexandria I noticed after I bought it that it's an extremly rare coin , OCRE has only two examples from this mint and on Acsearch is the only one, it appears there because Themis Numismatics tried to sell it in 2019 without success. I like the contrast between the two difrent patinas , blue-green against black-brown. Constantius II , 348 - 350, RIC VIII Alexandria 69 D N CONSTAN-TIVS P F AVG Bust of Constantius II, pearl-diademed, draped, cuirassed, right FEL TEMP REPARATIO , radiate phoenix standing right on globe, star in right field.

  10. This is my newest fraction from Carthage, what makes it special is the high silver content , I think has more than 70% silver. I was unable to find a similar billon/silver fraction.
