Nerosmyfavorite68 Posted December 10, 2022 · Member Share Posted December 10, 2022 I'm down to only missing a few affordable emperors now. What's affordable? A bit nebulous, but I wouldn't consider Eugenius to be affordable. Even a problem non-clipped siliqua now costs what a common Byzantine Solidus would. I've had a Johannes AV for a long time, but I'd consider him an affordable emperor because affordable AE4's come up all the time. Constantine III has always been a want, but I no longer consider him to be an affordable emperor. I guess I'd consider affordable to be under $500. Two have been recently crossed off the list, Valentinian II and Procopius. With the exception of Balbinus and Pupienus, what's left are emperors whom I don't care about or whose coins are too miserable for me to get excited about: -Lucius Verus (don't care) - Balbinus - Pupienus - Quietus (coins are a bit crap) - Carus (not sure if I'm missing him. I think I am. HIs coins are so common, I can easily pick one up) - Valentinian III (AE coins are tiny and crap, and I only want a western mint) https://www.vcoins.com/en/stores/london_ancient_coins/89/product/valentinian_iii_425455__11mm_rome_r_votxx/1284249/Default.aspx Is that Val. III correctly attributed? The style seems too good for the time. I'm no expert but the style is more reminiscent of 380-400. This particular one is reserved/sold, but something that decent (and relatively cheap), I probably would pick it up. Is anyone else getting close to picking up all of the (affordable) emperors? 11 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
