Couldn't resist snagging these two beautiful examples. I already have these guys in my collection, but the gorgeously silvered Carinus is an upgrade.

From left to right (my pics don't do them justice):
Carinus, AE Antoninianus, Antioch mint. IMP C M AVR CARINVS PF AVG, radiate, cuirassed bust right. / VIRTVS AVGG, Carinus standing right, holding sceptre, receiving Victory on globe from Carus standing left. Δ (Delta) in lower centre. Mintmark XXI.

Constantine I AE follis. 321-324 AD. CONSTANTINVS AVG, laureate head right. / DN CONSTANTINI MAX AVG around VOT XX star in three lines within wreath. Mintmark SMHB.

I love your upgraded Carinus. Mine is an OK example, but not like yours.

Rugar, thanks. If you got a pic of yours, I'd like to see it.

Thanks Bob and Rugar, those are not bad- but definitely upgradeable in the future. I can't find my original LOL, I guess it's good that I picked that up. I actually bury some coins in the ground that have been overcleaned (that was one of them)to darken them up. Results are pretty good. In the spirit of a Roman Legionnaire, I buried the stash and won't be able to retrieve it. Unless, I can somehow jar my memory. I have a Leo VI that has been buried for years and I'm still looking for it.

Still an Emperor I've yet to add to my collection..
I'm assuming this is RIC#325...Nice pick ups!
