Very attractive.” I concur wholeheartedly, the coin is a lovely one and shows much detail, indeed I think an exceptional one for the coinage of Quintillus, Asking price: $325 includes priority shipping and insurance in the U.S., registered to other countries (please see shipping information page)000_5315.JPG
