Sharp Roman Republican Denarius

22 Dec 2016

This is about as good as they get. This Hosidia denarius was graded Choice MS * my NGC. I have had it for over 30 years, resting in a mahogany coin cabinet developing a beautiful blue patina, while retaining full mint luster. The design is a wild boar with a spear in his shoulder being attacked by a hound. C HOSIDI C F in ex. standard for the minter, Gaius Hosidius Geta, son of Gaius.
