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.
