Some extremely rare coins were sold today including the only known coins of Pertinax's wife and son. One of my favorite coins also went under the hammer, an aureus with Septimius Severus on the obverse and Caracalla, Julia Domna and Geta on the back. I first saw this coin at the Capitoline Museum in Rome and didn't even know it existed until 2 years ago. It sold for $84k including BP.



My holy grail of collecting was also under the hammer. It is the deification issue of Julia Domna. I've been waiting for about 6 weeks and ended up fighting someone on the floor for this coin. Still, I lost at $900. Just couldn't justify $1000 for a coin that I'm only borrowing for a few years until I drop dead.



Oh well. Back to work.

There's also a coin with the jugate busts of Carausius, Maximian and Diocletian in that sale. Quite by coincident, there is another on sale in two days in exceptional condition so I doubt it has gone for much, but still a great one.



In a couple of weeks, a facing bust of Carausius is going on sale CNG. Bad condition compared to the example that sold last year (12k, found earlier in the year in Wiltshire), but a good one to watch.

Nice coins but way too rich for my budget.

My prediction is that over the coming months those little green pits are going to break the new owner's heart...
