OK, so I also got this yesterday. I was going to wait to post in the walking back in time thread (which I still will) but this decade is still a ways off so here goes.

She is corroded and ragged but the details are still quite good and I love it. This is quite honestly a coin I never thought I had a chance to acquire.

Charlemagne
(768 - 814)
AR Denarius

A.D. 793 - 812, Treviso, 22mm, .98g, ~0, Depeyrot 1079E.
Obv: + CARLVS REX FR. Cross in center.
Rev: +TARVIS. Caolus monogram.

That is a super pick-up @marti, but I'm hoping that you will be able to protect it well. The small cross/monogram in the center seem to be hanging on by only a thread of silver.

Added: As you know, we are still on the 1030s over in the OFED thread, so its gonna be several months before we arrive down to the 8th Century.

Hey spence, yes it is in a little capsule which I hate to use but it's for the best. I can still open it and touch it from time to time. :)

Ok good. I've got a couple medieval bracteates which are similarly fragile and have landed upon the same solution.

I have been looking for something like this for some years, failure for me so far.

I am happy to know that this coin is in a small capsule.
There is a great possibility that it could be affected by underlying silver crystallization.
Fragile enough, bur very much more so, if affected by Ag X

If the capsule is small enough, it still could be enclosed in a 2x2 so that full id can be attached to the coin, and take it's place in a coin album.

Sel, yes the capsule fits and I have it in an album. While it fits in the flip too, its a bit tight there so I just have the attrib. in the flip, and both the flip and capsule inserted into the 2x2 binder sheet. Both of which fit fine in there
