Newp: Claudius sestertius/Spes

Recommended Posts

I was pleased to unexpectedly win this one in the S-B auction.  Sorta kicking around the idea of doing the Twelve Caesars again; this time as a subset within my existing collection.

This is my first NGC ancient with the star ★ designation.

Cool coin! Though, the smoothing would drive me nuts, especially on the reverse. 

Here's one that didn't have a chance to get smoothed, as I bought it almost straight from being unearthed:

Everything done right!

Typical Claudius portrait. Great details. Great centring. Fantastic colour. Simply a coin that catches the eye and is a pleasure to look at.

Congratulations on the Claudius.
