Sweet coin. I don't think I've ever seen an example as finely struck and centered as this one. The obverse is a masterpiece of portraiture with eyes that seem to follow the viewer.

All I can say is thank god some people like books and others like Magna Graeca.


Otherwise I would not have my 2 new choice specimens.
