jfp7375 Posted December 6, 2022 · Member Share Posted December 6, 2022 (edited) Hi Everyone, Today I received a coin that I am very, very excited about - a very nice roman republican quadrigatus. This is a coin I've dreamed of owning, one of my first "bucket list" coins I identified when I started collecting. Absolutely thrilled with the coin overall, it's beautiful! I did notice, however, that the edges look a bit odd - some sections that are angular with abrasions that really look like filing marks. Anyone have insights here - is this normal/common for quadrigati? The coin is clearly struck (not cast), appears authentic in every other way, and came from a solid auction house (and was last auctioned in 2006 at another reputable auction house), so I'm not terribly worried about authenticity. But you can't be too careful. anyone have opinions on this - on authenticity or on whether the filed edges are normal/common? Sorry the photos aren't very good - just doing my best with an older iPhone. Edited December 6, 2022 by jfp7375 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
