Another replacement coin I got on a limited budget. This is (by a large margin) Geta´s most commonly encountered Sestertius type and the coin is both worn and displays cleaning scratches, BUT I like it's large, almost medallic flan.

And this was my (sadly stolen) original Geta of the same type: cracked, pitted, but with more detail and an astonishing golden orichalcum colour:
