“IN RECTO DECUS” translates as “HONOR IN DOING RIGHT”
This past week I was able to add a new coin to my collection. I had been watching several coins part of Heritage Auctions January 12-13 world coins sale. I have been building a collection of Wildman coins and this sale had at least a dozen examples with many of them being in mint state. Even though this is graded AU58 it is one of the best struck examples I have seen. Many of these have weak areas which seems to be most obvious in the Wildman's face.
