Here is another upgrade I just made to my Imperial Rome collection. This time Claudius. Like my other post on Tiberius, my previous Claudius was purchased a long time ago and was far from attractive.

AE As, A.D. 41-50, Rome, 31mm, 11.2g, ~160, : RIC I 97. Ex Hanlon collection.
Obv: TI CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG PM TR P IMP. Bare head left.
Rev: LIBERTAS AVGVSTA. Libertas standing facing, holding pileus and raising hand; S-C in field.



Here is the old one:

That's a sweet looking upgrade Martin!..
Wonderful portrait but I'm really interested in the reverse..What are the vertical lines between her legs? Some sort of pedestal?

That's a nice Claudius As. Your old Claudius is also nice looking, to me.

Gorgeous coin @mar! The remaining detail on Libertas is amazing.

@paluche I am not certain what that is. I think it is the hem of her cloak.

Full legends, even fields and minimal wear = a premium coin.
Especially for larger Roman bronzes.
