    51BA2399-83D8-4EAF-93DE-468F23EF7163.jpeg Recently I posted about not having any Greeks in my collection, to my amazement @Bing messages me asking if I wanted a Greek for free. This is what he sent me a Philip the second bronze piece. Thank you sir for being a stand up guy and you have my friendship. 19B3A1B0-BCE6-487E-A5CB-66065B9006CA.jpeg

    I like the history behind it, without his dad, Alexander would have been just another king of Macedonia

    Nice coin and even nicer gesture! @Bing is just awesome that way (even though he still hasn’t given me that Fonteius galley denarius :angelic::D).
