Prieure de Sion Posted July 28, 2022 · Member Share Posted July 28, 2022 Description: RIC# 97; Gold 4.75 g.; Gordian III; Obv: IMPGORDIANVSPIVSFELAVG - Laureate, draped and cuirassed bust right. Rev: AETERNITATIAVG - Sol standing, facing, raising hand and holding globe; UNC. To be clear - I did NOT buy the coin at auction. It does not belong to me. But today, I admit, I did bid on it. At least I was in on it up to 3,900 euros (pre-bid). Then I forgot that today is the third day of the auction - and missed the auction. The Aureus was sold for 4,001 euros - which is currently not a bad price. I am therefore a bit annoyed to have missed the day today. However, I am a bit sceptical about the coin. I'm not 100% convinced - that's why I was a bit cautious with the pre-bid. At 12 o'clock I don't like it. Could that be a plugged hole? What I also don't like - visually - is the long straight "line/edge" on the eye and the rough neck area plus the quirk on the cheek. What do you think of the coin? 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
