I emailed my smartphone photos of this coin to myself on June 14, 2017, shortly after taking them, for the purpose of inclusion in this thread.

Said photos successfully arrived... today, just over nine months later.



Obverse: D[I]VA-FA[VSTINA], bust of Faustina right
Reverse: AET[ER-NITA]S, Aeternitas standing, facing left?, holding globe? to left, veil billowing out around and behind her.

Effectively the same type as Palouche's much better example, so likely the same attribution as well (RIC 351 and so on).


...Really, if it wasn't for that veil, I probably wouldn't have been able to attribute the reverse at all. Fortunately the veil was pretty recognizable.

"Provenance" (as far as I can recall it): ex Kaliningrad coin fair, August 2016, 200 rubles (~$3).

[EDIT: clarified extent of remaining legend]

Imaged this one for the latest "walking back" thread but missed the day. Quite pleased with this upgrade, although I eventually hope to snag a lifetime issue, and one featuring her temple on the reverse.

Very nice lifetime Faustina I Paul!

Might as well contribute mine while I'm at it



I spotted LRB on another forum not so long ago - I believe that he was taking a break from collecting for a bit.

Not sure about EFLC.
