VOT/XX

RIC X 2130

Very rare. Good portrait. Good surfaces.

 

 

I offer three remarkably nice late Roman SALVS REIPVBLICAE AE4s. Please compare the prices with elsewhere. Mostly coins with this better-than-normal flan size and a full flan (including a legible mintmark) are offered at twice the price or more.

Valentinian II, 375-392
14 mm. SMKB for Cyzicus [$19]

 

 

Arcadius, a bit larger than normal. 15 mm.
SMHB [$19]

 

 

In 30 years I still have not found a nice Honorius. 13 mm. This reverse is typically incomplete and the obverse is much better than normal. At least you can read "HONORIVS". [Only one of this type on vcoins, but at $58. Here, $17, not because it is nice, but because you probably can't find one nicer.]

 

 

[$225, reduced from $245]  Johannes, 20 Nov. 423 - May 425.
AE4. 11-10 mm. 1.19 grams.
Portrait and the "ES" are clearly of Johannes. 
A rarity.

GLORIA begins on the left, but
[REP]ARATIO finishes on the right.
CONSP

Remarkably complex. I think this shows the FTR types were devalued and replaced by the AE3s. This flan was only a bit larger than the normal flans, so it was put into service, but the coin was not deeply struck.  Of historical interest and it is extremely hard to find a coin making this point:  [$49, reduced to $39]

VIRTVS EXRCT
CONE in exergue
RIC X 652 "R5"
The VIRTVS type is rarer than the SALVS type.
emperor standing right holding standard and globe, spurning small captive at feet.
The type is very rare and AE2s are remarkably large for the time period when most coins are AE4s. 
Some scholars think the type was struck as Constantinople (as the mintmark says) although the type is found only in Crimea (formerly Ukraine, now Russia). 
None on vcoins or MA-Shops. [$125, reduced to $95 SOLD] This is a very remarkable type, so when RIC X has it as "R5" you know it was extremely rare when RIC came out, although less rare now.
