Roman Collector Posted February 2 · Patron Share Posted February 2 This middle bronze of Faustina I is currently up for auction on Biddr. It has been extensively tooled on obverse and reverse. I've notified the auction house because they do not mention it in the lot description. This is an unaltered specimen from my own collection for comparison: And a higher grade example from the British Museum: Tooling such as this is driven by the demand for high grade bronze. The bronze coins of the Antonine period circulated for decades and there are very few genuinely high-grade specimens. Be very careful when you see high grade Antonine bronze for sale. 9 9 1 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
