I wanted to show off the progress on the Roman Emperor set I've been building for a little while now. It's all in a nice riker box display I made, looks great imo.







On a really tight budget at the moment, so I don't mind poor condition as long as it's identifiable. Though there are many I would definitely like to upgrade at some point.

My cut-off is around 420 AD, right before the coins start getting really tough to find and the bronzes get really ugly.

Why is X, Y, or Z missing? I didn't want to include any usurpers, debated, or unrecognized emperors in this set. If I happen to get an example of Maxentius, Saloninus, Albinus, or others I may shift some around to fit them in or, more likely, I'll create a second display for the usurpers and uncertain guys.

Also, I do have a Constantius Chlorus on the way. Next one I'm looking for is Maximinus Thrax.

You've got the right idea, Tanman. Start with lower grade specimens and upgrade as you go. The collection is coming along nicely! Thank you for sharing it.

"Stick with your plan - upgrade when you can" The way I display my coins is constantly changing. You will no doubt find a an unexpected find that will make you shift everything around -again and again

I like the way you have yours labeled, I 'm thinking about making information cards for each coin.

Two of my current displays - both of which I picked up for free at my local coin shop:
