All great coins but the one David posted today gets the prize for the nicest toning in this thread thus far. It's beautiful.

Thanks Bob, I worry a bit that this toning could fade or change in time ( it was like that when I bought it and I stuck it in a 2x2) but it's a pretty coin.

Agreed, I am loving those tets!

Simple curiosity... in theory there ought to be a "full" set by month and year for as long as that dating convention was in place. How many of the month/year combinations have been accounted for?

"At least 125" for Vologases IV (147-191 AD), says Doug Smith on this relatively old page.

The actual number is almost certainly larger.
