We are going to take step with this denier of Caracalla, that you can see enlarged here.
1) First step : determine the quality of the currency :
This coin is "fleur de coin" (uncirculated), but according to our criteria, not completely an "exceptional exemplary " because the grènetis is not visible in its entirety of both quotations of the coin. However, the quality of the portrait is extraordinary, especially louse this type, and it is about the nicest copy which I know.
It is a matter well therefore more of a "superb" classical exemplary. We determine as well as his evaluation will be situated between quotations "exceptional" and "superbe"... In the Exceptional column 550 € is in italics, meaning that we did not find this exemplaire type, and in the superb column, the estimation is of 160 to 220 €, showing that the prices are here very variable. The evaluation of this denier is located therefore rather high, between 220 and 550 €, be about 375 €. Note that this copy was paid well more expensive by his former owner (£ 500 !!!) but that estimation is that I paid after a lot of negotiations, be at this era 450 $ !
Two other examples : dupondius of Julia Titi
1) You can also see here.
First step, determine the quality : it is a matter of a very nice exemplary, not very employed, with a nice portrait. We can consider it as TTB, by noting that the quality of the patina could be bigger (green smooths would be the must). Second step : we find 1250 € in the column TTB and 500 € in the column TB, we determine therefore that the value is located between 1250 and 500, closer of 1250, be about 750 to 1000 €.
2) That you can see here.
First step, determine the quality : we have matter here to an exemplary rather used, to the multiples defects, that, in addition to been perced (one does not know too how or why... at last this does one say). According to our criteria it would be a little better than beautiful, but the hole the dismissal in an again inferior category. Second step : we find 100 € in the column B, we can divide at least by two or three the value found because of this important defect, be about 75 €.
