Hello everyone. This Ptolemy Bronze spoke to me Sunday at our local coin show. When it spoke, the words were muffled by the plastic between us. I'm pretty sure it was trying to say "buy me collect89". The legends were easy to read & the wear, style, & surfaces were pleasing. The design is a little soft in some areas but overall the coin is the result of a relatively good strike some 2,200 years ago. The only negative aspect of this coin may be that it resides in a fat-boy slab & is difficult to photograph. The coin is innocent so please don't hold the slab against the coin. Although the words are muffled, I believe I am hearing "free me collect89". Is my coin label below accurate? Is that ΛI between the eagle's legs? Is it from the Alexandria mint and Series 5? Any further info, corrections, & reference numbers would be appreciated. PTOLEMAIC KINGS OF EGYPT. Ptolemy IV Philopater 222-205/4 BC. Æ Drachm, 42mm Alexandria mint, Series 5. Obv: Diademed head of Zeus-Ammon right. Rev: ΠΤΟΛΕΜΑΙΟΥ ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ; Eagle with closed wings standing left on thunderbolt; ΛI between legs. Grade: gVF as described by NGC slab. Pleasing dark chocolate color with good surface & strike (not described on the NGC slab). By the way, the coin's surfaces are really quite nice & my photos have not captured it. We may get some better photos when the coin is free of the plastic. In the mean time, Let's see some photos of your Ptolemy pond skippers.
