LUCIUS VERUS, A.D. 161-169. AV Aureus (7.21 gms), Rome Mint, A.D. 164. NGC MS, Strike: 5/5 Surface: 3/5. Fine Style. Ex Jewelry. RIC-522; Calico-2174. Obverse: Bare head right; Reverse: Victory standing right, holding round shield inscribed VIC/AVG in two lines and set upon palm tree to right. Bold and brilliant, this flashy specimen radiates with original luster and golden-orange appeal. The relief and detail within the hair of Verus is particularly engaging, with the noted jewelry detail emanating from a few light and rather inconsequential marks near the peripheries.
