In an Unusually Fine Condition !

Wandering around the world on eBay I stumbled upon some lots of Tetrarchy folles
They looked rather fine so I went "long"
To my surprise they came in on the cheap !
A few days later Herr Lanz had a few more looking for a home
He usually gets very impressive prices
To my surprise they were very reasonable
Plus I had $38 in eBay Bucks to ease the pain !

In the interest of saving time
I will dispense with the complete attributions

Two Folles
Constantius I
Rome - 27-8mm 9.23 gram
Heraclea - 27-8mm 9.42 grams

Two Folles
Severus II - Cyzicus
Constantius I - Carthage

Two Folles
Lugdunum 27-8 8.03 grams
London 26-8mm 10.01 grams

Two Folles
Lugdunum Silvered Billon Follis 26-8mm 8.51 grams
Lugdunum Ć Follis 27-31mm 8.13 grams

Two Folles
Constantine the Great Lugdunum 27mm 6.52 grams
Licinius I Thessaloniki 26-7mm 6.73 grams

Averaged out they came in under $30 each
And that's before my eBay Bucks

Happiness is a warm follis .......
Preferably London Trier Lyon or Carthage !

Occasionally Thessaloniki Heraclea ...... or even Cyzicus
IN GOD WE TRVST ....... all others pay cash !

I think ...... therefore I yam

They might be common, but they are really excellent examples.
