    I picked this coin up at the show yesterday from the same gentleman who sold me the Satrap coins.

    He dated this Drachm to 800-950 AD

    I can barely see that coin. They shot those pictures with stadium flood lights overhead just to make sure the picture was extra bright.

    I'll ask around and see what stirs.

    oh i am in love. i need to send you money so you can go coin hunting for me if that other guy doesnt deliver to you. I hope you have paypal. I forgot to ask do you have submission rights to NGC/PCGS by any chance. i might get an expensive coin here pretty cheap ( a one in a million shot literally and i would love to see the coin in a tomb :D)

    Nah - I don't have submittal rights In fact, there is a great Merc I have that badly needs a new case. I doubt I have paypal either. Let me talk to my friend that does a lot of ebay business and see what he says.
