As some of you know, I am currently in between jobs and need to liquidate some of my duplicates to stay on top of bills. All prices I would consider fair, but I am willing to consider any reasonable offers.

Shipping is $3 to the U.S. Foreign shipping is $12.

I can accept paypal, cash, or check.

1. Postumus, Secessionist emperor in Gaul, 259-269 AD
IMP C POSTVMVS PF AVG, Radiate, cuirassed and draped bust right
SALVS AVG, Salus standing, leaning on rudder, feeding serpent climbing from altar
RIC 85




A superb portrait on a flan of good size. The patina is a bit bumpy, and this coin could probably use a long soak in distilled water or olive oil. A very nice example of the type.

$12

2. Postumus 259-269 AD
IMP C POSTVMVS PF AVG, Radiate, draped bust right
IOVI VICTORI, Jupiter standing, holding scepter and preparing thunderbolt for a good ol' fashioned smiting
RIC 311




Coin much better in hand than in photos. Very nice, less common reverse type in good style.

$16

3. Gallienus, sole reign 260-268
GALLIENVS AVG, Radiate bust right
DIANAE CONS AVG, Stag walking left
RIC 179




A weakly struck reverse with a superb portrait for the series. Attractive smooth black patina. This, along with the other "zoo series" were minted to invoke the divine protection against the continual onslaught of hardships facing the Empire. This one invokes Diana, goddess of the Hunt.

$6

4. Gallienus, sole reign 260-268
GALLIENVS AVG, Radiate bust right
PAX PVBLICA, Pax seated left, holding olive branch and scepter, Mintmark V
RIC 260




A good portrait and clear reverse, despite the ragged flan.

$5

5. Gallienus, sole reign 260-268
IMP GALLIENVS PF AVG, Radiate bust right
SALVS AVG, Aesculapius standing, leaning on serpent-entwined staff, Mintmark P
RIC 511




Again somewhat patchy patina, but a generous, fully intact flan with great eye appeal. Tough reverse deity as well!

$15

6. Claudius II "Gothicus" 268-270
IMP CLAVDIVS PF AVG, Radiate bust right
VICTOR GERMAN, Trophy between two bound captives
RIC 247
Rated Rare!




A rare, historically significant antoninianus from one of the Crisis's most famed emperors! Some weakness in the lettering and a small flan crack, but the coin is gorgeously detailed with a very attractive green patina.

$25

7. Claudius II 268-270
IMP CLAVDIVS PF AVG, Radiate and draped bust right
VICTORIA AVG, Victory running right holding wreath and palm branch, mintmark S
RIC 171
Milan Mint




Coin is much better in hand. A truly superb portrait of Claudius II, from a very early issue soon after his nomination as emperor.

$15

8. Salonina, wife of Gallienus 253-268
SALONINA AVG, Draped bust right on crescent
PVDICITIA, Pudicitia seated, holding scepter and drawing back drapery from face. Mintmark VI
RIC 25




Difficult to photograph, but coin has a very attractive glossy black/charcoal patina. Very attractive in-hand, even if a bit worn. A solid example

$12


9. Tetricus I, Gallic emperor 271-274
IMP C TETRICVS PF AVG, Draped and radiate bust right
PAX AVG, Pax holding olive branch and scepter
RIC 100




Nice solid example of the type with a good portrait on a smallish flan.

$8

10. Tetricus I, Gallic emperor 271-274
IMP C TETRICVS PF AVG, Draped and cuirassed bust right
SPES PVBLICA, Spes walking left, raising robes and holding flower
RIC 136




Despite the irregular flan, this coin is in terriffic shape, and displays an unusually good art style for the series. The portrait is superb, and appears to have been cut down from an older Victorinus portrait. This would be in my collection if I didn't already have one I was more fond of!

$20

11. Tetricus I, Gallic emperor 271-274
IMP C TETRICVS PF AVG, Draped and radiate bust right
PAX AVG, Pax holding olive branch and scepter
RIC 100




Very nice portrait with an attractive patina on a severely reduced flan. May be a very good quality contemporary copy.

12. Claudius II 268-270
FORTVNA REDVX, Fortuna standing, holding rudder and cornucopia
Double struck, second strike about 3mm lower and 45 degrees rotated from first strike.
RIC 41




A truly superb error coin that I would probably be keeping if I didn't already promise myself I woud sell it. Very interestingly, the obverse second strike is rotated more than the reverse, I suppose indicating that the mint employee turned the die slightly for the second strike.

$40

13. Valerian I 253-260
IMP C P LIC VALERIANVS PF AVG
VOTA ORBIS, Two victories mounting shield inscribed S-C on palm tree
Antioch mint, c. 253-256 AD
RIC 294 (var. Obv legend?)




A bit rough, but still a solid example of a scarcer and historically significant reverse type for this emperor, signifying his intent to stick it to the Persians and recover the lost territory in the East.

$20

14. Claudius II 268-270
IMP CLAVDIVS AVG, Radiate head right
MARTI PACIF, Mars standing, holding olive branch and spear, sheild resting at knee




The reverse shows some environmental wear, but the obverse is quite well preserved and lustrous with an attractive green patina. Somewhat reduced flan, but solid. Unusual portrait style. Much better in hand!

$18

15. Gallienus, sole reign 260-268
IMP GALLIENVS AVG, Radiate head rightABVNANTIA AVG, Abundantia standing, emptying cornucopia
RIC 157




Somewhat worn, but solid details with much better artwork on the reverse than is typical for coins of this period. Very nice political message! Glossy dark patina in hand.

$6


16. Gordian III 238-244
IMP CAES M ANT GORDIANVS AVG, Radiate and draped bust right
AEQUITAS AVG, Aequitas standing, holding scales and cornucopia
RIC 34




A really nice coin, as his usually are. Some light wear, but solid details, Just look at the intricate detailing on Aequitas' cornucopia!

$40

Thansk for looking!
