I am only getting round to processing some recent purchases. I try and do them when they arrive but at the moment I am waiting for a few to arrive and processing them in batches. I was browsing the stock of @YOTHR and spotted this one. I am a sucker for these Eastern issues.

Julia Maesa denarius

Obv:– IVLIA MAESA AVG Draped bust of Julia Maesa to right, her hair bound in a bun at the back
Rev:– FECVNDITAS, Fecunditas seated left, holding branch and scepter; child to left and right.

Reference– RIC 249, note; BMC p. 540, * note; RSC 7a.

2.74g, 20.20mm, 0o

Slight flat strike in the centres.

Anyone else have any Eastern issues of Julia Maesa?

I don't have an Eastern Maesa but I have a Fecunditas Rome denarius. This would have been a fantastic coin -  minimum wear level, excellent dies, good strike. But most likely the previous owner had the coins stored in a very bad holder? or something similar. Never seen silver coins damaged in this pattern. This was not a singular event - there were other coins from this period in 2-3 auctions and I bought others. Presumably from the same collection.
