zadie Posted February 17 · Member Share Posted February 17 A new addition to the collection. This Legio II denarius is one of the most surpising purchases I've made in a while. As can be clearly seen, it has been overstruck on a previous denarius of an uncertain legion (perhaps Legio II). I quite like overstrikes and this coin has the interesting distinction of showing a clear undertype whilst suffering minimal loss of detail. Mark Antony. Autumn 32-spring 31 BC. AR Denarius. Legionary issue. Patrae(?) mint. Praetorian galley right, ANT·AVG·III·VIR·R·P·C / Aquila between two signa; LEG II. 3.68 g, 16 mm. Crawford 544/14. To my surprise, when I received the coin in hand it was obvious that the coin was much better in hand: fewafwaewygerfse.mp4 This is the first legionary denarius I've had with such bright surfaces and fresh metal. It's almost hard to photograph/film. Needless to say, I'm very happy with it. 19 1 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
