airhead1983 Posted June 18, 2022 · Member Share Posted June 18, 2022 Hi Everyone, Happy Saturday! As I've mentioned before, I'll be focusing on coins with reptiles for a while. In order to raise the money to get my Herod Antipas coins earlier this year, I sold a couple of coins to my brother. One was my Nemausus dupondius with the crocodile and the other was my Augustus denarius with the comet. Although I miss having them in my collection, the advantage of having a family member that collects the same thing you do is that pretty much nothing will leave the family. lol After Herbert died, I especially missed having the dupondius. The generosity of the other forum has followed to this forum, unsurprisingly. You are all incredibly generous! @Qcumbor messaged me a couple of weeks ago offering me a crocodile to replace my old one. I was and still am very excited about it! This dupondius was cut in half to make change (AE As). But, it has an excellent portrait of Augustus and a very cute, full crocodile. I admire the cutter for making the perfect cut! This one, although cut, is far less worn than my other one and I like it a lot better. Thank you again, @Qcumbor, and to everyone for your continued support and encouragement! Please show your reptiles! I would love to add to my wish list. 😄 Erin 22 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
