Several years ago I posted the London Tetrarchy folles I had recently acquired
Another CCF member astutely observed that my trays had some empty spaces ......
Well I did what I could to remedy that shortcoming
Took some time but having patience has its rewards

Constantius I as Caesar


I posted these two "brothers" once before


I like finding the "lefty's"
Usually the competition drives me away ..... but not always !
Lugdunum (Lyon) and Trier



Galerius as Caesar



The ever elusive "Invasion" Follis (Lyon style sans mint mark) and a very nice follis of London



Assorted (miscellaneous) Folles
Constantius Galerius Maximianus Maxentius Maximinus Licinius Severus II and Constantine



Another pair of Bro's
Maximianus London


Two Constantines
Heraclea 28-9mm 12.41 grams
Lugdunum (Lyon) 27mm 6.49 grams



Somewhat strange that the Constantine (not yet so Great) is the largest follis (by weight) that I own
Heraclea is far afield from my western obsession
But the coin was too Great to resist !
IN GOD WE TRVST ....... all others pay cash !

COGITO ERGO SPVD
I think ...... therefore I yam

I was fortunate to be in the right place for most of my Tetrarchy collection and later near enough to an estate sale to purchase some Olde Coin cabinets and trays and two very convenient Abafil boxes
The bottom cabinet beneath the caravan bag (flea market) is not only incredibly heavy but in an interesting early semi rough style
I took out the locks to clean them and found an 1850's Hallmark from British India !
I justified the expense by figuring I would choose which to keep
After 5-6 years I am still trying to decide which ones should go

IN GOD WE TRVST ....... all others pay cash !
