I know little about ancients but can certainly appreciate handsome coins like those, and the satisfaction of completing s set!

Thanks for the comments!......
I've really enjoyed collecting this set and have learnt sooo much on the journey....
I will add a Commodus/Crispina...Lucius Verus/Lucilla and eventually an Aelius...in Silver...
At the moment I'm collecting the same emperors but in Sestertius, Dupondius and As....And will add them to the set as they arrive.....Paul

Hi Palouche,

What a nice collection you have. I also plan to have the 5 good emperors but for instance I only have 2 (trajan and antonius pius).

You mentionned that you had most coins (except trajan and nerva) for under 30$. That is impressive. Where did you buy your coins? Personnaly I haven't seen such good deals !

Regards,
Marcussian

Congrats on completing the set @Paul! I'm excited for you - that was a terriffic deal on the Plotina, thanks entirely to it being misattributed as Agrippina II by the auction house! I only caught it because it's a die match to my own example:



Sadly, that isn't the end of the road if one wants to collect *all* of the Nerva-Antonine dynasty...

- Marciana, sister of Trajan (Pricey!)
- Divus Trajan Pater, Biological father of Trajan (doable)
- Matidia, niece of Trajan (Pricey!)
- Antinous, Hadrian's boy toy (Extremely pricey!)
- Galerius Antoninus, Antoninus Pius' biological son (Exceptionally rare)
- Domitia Lucilla, Marcus Aurelius' mommy (Only a few known examples)
- Annius Verus Caesar, younger brother of Commodus (Doable with patience)

And it is also worth noting that many consider the little stick figure babies on the many Fecunditas / Pietas issues of Faustina II to be representative of her living children at the time....

Thanks Steve but it came down to your sharp eyes! I would think that most CCF members, including myself, would have skipped past this unless they were actually looking for an Agrippina II coin?....Thanks again a great find!

@marcussian.....The AP, H and MA I'm pretty sure were all well under $30 and purchased from ebay sellers that I've used for years....Some of the other coins are from CCF members...You just have to keep your eyes open, be patient and they will eventually arrive....Paul
