maridvnvm Posted Saturday at 03:59 PM · Member Share Posted Saturday at 03:59 PM There are certain obverse dies that form part of a variety of sub-series that I collect avidly. Amongst these are what I refer to as the Short COS II legends, which are eastern and are Short due to a number of shortened aspects within the obverse legends. If I see them and I can afford them then I buy them. As such I sometimes end up with multiple double die matches. Here is a new reverse type for this particular obverse die in the context of the other examples I have in my collection. Sellers often do not spot the legends variations....... Obv:– IMP CA L SEP SEV PER AVG COS II, laureate head right Rev:– MONET AVG, Moneta standing left, holding scales in right hand, cornucopiae in left Minted in Emesa. A.D. 194 Reference:– BMC -. RIC -. RSC -. Here are the others that I have with the same obverse die..... Rev:– BONA SPES, Spes standing holding flower and lifting skirt Minted in Emesa. A.D. 194 Reference:– BMC -. RIC -. RSC -. 3.38 g. 18.58 mm. 0 degrees Rev:– BONI EVENTVS, Fides (Bonus Eventus - RIC) standing left, basket of fruit in right, two heads of grain in left Minted in Emesa. A.D. 194 – A.D. 195 Reference:– BMCRE -. RIC -. RSC -. Rev:– VICTO-R AV-G, Victory advancing left, holding wreath and palm Minted in Emesa. A.D. 194 - 195 References:– BMCRE -. RIC -. RSC -. My records show that I have another example in my trays that requires photography. I am also aware of two die matched examples with reverse "VI-C-T-OR AVG Victory advancing to right, holding military trophy in both hands". My search for one of these continues. 11 2 1 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
