The last time I did something like this it was pretty well received, so what the heck. I'll let the coins speak for themselves. They're pretty chatty.

Great haul 🤩. The Antony- Augustus denarius is breathtaking 😮!

Thanks! Note that it's not the way more common Crawford 517/2, struck by Antony's quaestor M. Barbatius Pollio. This was issued in the names of Antony and Octavian alone. It's nothing I would call "rare," but it is legitimately scarce and hard to find as nice as this.

Aha! So it was you, Phil.  Going into this Roma sale I thought the prawn denarius was mine at just about any reasonable cost but you braved it out longer than I could.  Congratulations on a coin deserving of the finest collection (yours).   Sorry I drove your price up a bit.  In the sale, I did win this later anonymous denarius RRC 278/1 that I am pleased with, so my tears were short lived:
