Vintage from the 1900s

Welcome and thanks for visiting!

This is my second shop on Etsy dedicated to coins, medals, tokens and much more. If you like old and vintage ephemera, photos, post cards and more please make sure you visit my other shop SamEphemera.

I am offering the Ancient Roman Modern copper alloy button or cufflink copying a Roman coin.

Legend on front: IMP NERO CAESAR AVG P MAX TR P P P Which translates as: "Imperator Nero Caesar Augustus Pontifix Maximus Tribunicia Potestate Pater Patriae"or: "The Head of the Army, Nero, of the Julio-Claudian line, emperor, chief priest, Head of State, and Father of his Country".

The button has a slightly concave back with a raised rim and the stub of a attachment loop. The front has a laurate bust of Nero facing left with the legend IMP NERO CAESAR AVG P MAX TP [PPP]. This copies a type from dupondii of Nero such as RIC 519.

Among the atrocious acts ascribed to Nero were: the murder of his mother, stepfather (Claudius), and pregnant wife; the erection of a colossus in his image; and the great fire of Rome. Faced with revolt he fled to Ostia and committed suicide, ending the Julio-Claudian dynasty.


Measurement: Maximum 22 mm.

Weight: 2.6 grams.

Condition: (VF) Very Fine, see photos.


As a coin collector I DO NOT clean any of my coins to preserve the original patina, if you wish to clean the coin/s I will leave it up to you.

The button you see in the photo is the button you get.

Fantastic for your jewelry, craft projects, Steampunk, collage art projects or just a great addition to your buttons collection.
