All of these have been bought since the new year and are pending at NGC right now.
Julius Caesar, lifetime portrait denarius from around the time of his assassination, circa February to March of 44 BC. (An ugly duckling, perhaps, but rather rare!)
The Tiberius "Tribute Penny" denarius of biblical fame.
A denarius of the short-lived civil war emperor Otho, 69 AD. I bought this from Harlan J. Berk in 2007, had to sell it with most of my collection when I got laid off in 2008, and just recently bought it back.

ArchitechtArchitecht We apologise again for the fault in the moderation. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked.
It's POSSIBLE that your competitive spirit has displaced your sense of courtesy.

Never seen anything like them. If they are authentic, which I'd worry about, I'd start looking at Oriental, India or Islamic. Certianly not Roman, Greek, Medieval or Byzantine. Don't even look Islamic to me. Seen quite a few ancient Islamic, but none like that. If I had to chose, I'd say India (but fake).
