Picked up another nice Ant of Postumus - I try to pick up any I see for <10, but I went slightly over budget for this - 10.05. This one is a bit off center on the reverse but the die is crisp. The obverse is well centered and a good strike from a good die, but there is some encrustation.

This is an early issue (COS II), around 260AD (Postumus having captured Gaul in 259AD). The COS I and COS III issues for the same design are very similar.

Amazing remaining detail on this one @ben. What is the dude on the rev doing? Jai alai?

Nothing like snagging a great coin at a great price. For me, that is another aspect that I love about this hobby.

I thought mine was a steal at just under $25 or just under 19.
