Nice presentation as always.

My favorite is the Diva Mariniana - a type I am still chasing and patiently waiting for a pocket-friendly and eye-friendly example to appear.

A nicely silvered antoninanus is not that common as it might seem but not impossible to get.
Here is the Gallus I have in my collection

Some others with similar characteristics and in pleasant condition (or at least interesting for me)

(this modest Volusian is one of my favorite antoninianii - a rare variety + the strange looking flan)

I have an amusing story about an (unphotographed) Probus silvered Ant (completely, if IIRC) that I bought from a local small show, one which occasionally had a smattering of ancients.  This coin was the only one that I cared halfway about and I asked the dealer how much?  He said twenty, to which I incredulously repeated the number.  He must have thought I was complaining about the price, as he said he wouldn't go any lower.  I happily plonked down the twenty.  This was c. 2009.

I remember I was at a small market many years ago. There was a guy with lots of coins on a table and many other pieces of various junk. The coins were mostly zero value but among them it was a decent(ish) modern coin I needed. In its current state the value was 100-120 lei (~20-25 euros). I asked him the price. He looks in the sky, thinks, mumbles and then - 70 lei (~14 euros).

I stared a little at him. He shouted angrily - no less than 30 lei! (~6 euros). 😐

The guy certainly won 'negotiator of the year' award.
