  6. Dumbarton Oaks dates this issue to A.D. 385 because of the consular dress. here's my Theodosius Theodosius I A.D. 384- 388 18x20mm 2.3g D N THEODO-SIVS P F AVG; pearl diademed, draped in imperial mantle, holding mappa and scepter.

  8. Yes, it was issued shortly after the transfer of the mint. Here is a link to my page about this coin https://www.constantinethegreatcoins.com/VICTORIA/
  9. Here are the original auction pics for the previously unknown type...center top coin Constantine I Circa A.D. 313 21mm 3.7gm IMP C CONSTANTINVS P F AVG; laureate and cuirassed bust right. VICTORIA [AETERNA AVGG NN]; Emperor on right, in military dress, holding spear, receiving palm branch from Victory; kneeling figure between them [holding offering]. In exergue SARL
  10. I bought the coin below in 2013 from a seller in France for less than $5...the shipping was more expensive than the coin. seller's photo
  11. If you collect certain series, you pay what you have to. For the Maximianus, the bust type is not in RIC and the only example I have seen. It is also the nicest CONSERVATOR in my collection. Of course, if you only collect one of each Emperor, you have much more financial flexibility. https://www.constantinethegreatcoins.com/CONSERVATOR/
  12. y'all don't understand overpaying until you do this 1200 eur the auction company even listed this one as an auction highlight (bottom right) or this one 1500 eur 650 pounds 440 pounds ...and I could go on and on.

  14. Constantine had a monetary reform in 318; with the new VLPP containing 4% silver; double the IOVI coinage. While you do find IOVI overstruck, most were melted down and struck as VLPP's. I published my small study of unofficial VLPP's in which I surmised that they would turn out to be about 2% silver. https://www.constantinethegreatcoins.com/barb2/ two more overstrikes-- a Constantine and Licinius turned into VLPP's
  15. possibly TEMPORVM FELICITAS "happy times"
