Not had much money to spend the last couple of months so I've been picking up some of the cheaper to obtain rulers...Here's my latest...Really liked the portrait..
Postumus, Antoninianus, 260-269, Trier, , Billon 21MM
Obverse- Radiate, draped and cuirassed bust right IMP C POSTVMVS P F AVG
Reverse- Serapis standing left, raising hand & holding sceptre; prow at his feet to left SERAPI COMITI AVG
RIC-329 Trier mint (AD 267)

Are there any design/style differences between Trier and Cologne mints?

That is a sweet portrait--so much remaining detail in the hair on his head and face.

I love a good Postumus antoninianus, and that is one sharp portrait! Love the two-tone patina!
