This is what i have for now...
It is a wonderful piece of History! First Silver coin of Rome. Well done. You HAVE it, no rush to “upgrade”. You already touch that interesting timeline. Great coin and congrats!
Now, my reason for asking the question in this thread, was by how much less, percentage wise, do you think the "damage" affects the marked value of this coin? Also how does this revelation change your willingness to buy such a coin, Here is the coin once again with a side view of the damage:
Man O man, I was waiting for the twist! It really doesn't effect the desirability of the coin for me much at all. The obverese and reverse still look excellent... Though, classless as it be, I'm interested in knowing how much you paid!?!!
@Multatuli , you have an awesome piece of Rome’s History!
Hmmm... price. I will think on that. Neat conundrum. AND, knowing YOU... you got an incredible deal!
In fact knowing some material was removed from edges my put my mind at ease about the low weight.
Overall the ex jewelry thing wouldn't bother me much as long as the coin itself was desireable. You'd better believe I'd still use that as a negotiating tactic though
I don't mind. If I wasn't the owner I would want to know. So total was slightly more than $250.
Wait a minute!!! Are you calling me cheap???????
Very nice deal IMHO.
LOL, haaail no! Frugal at the finest!
. Ya got all the Antony Legio Denarii... now ya GOTTA get these!!!
Here is the Century of Roman History that I enjoy - so many major events that shaped Rome into a World Power...:
RR Anon AR Heavy Denarius / Didrachm 310-300 BCE Mars-Horse FIRST SILVER Coin Minted by the Romans
RR Anon AR Heavy Denarius / Didrachm 275-270 BCE ROMANO Apollo-Galloping Horse Sear 23
RR Anon 265-242 BCE Heavy Denarius / Didrachm Roma-Victory Crawford 22-1 Sear 25 - First Silver coin MINTED in Rome.
RR Anon 234-231 BCE AR Heavy Denarius / Didrachm Apollo-Horse prancing Crawford 26-1 Sear 28
RR Anon Heavy Denarius / Didrachm Quadrigatus Janus 225-215 BCE Craw 28-3 Sear 31
I STILL need to get @Cucumbor ’s Hercules / She-wolf Heavy Denarius / Didrachm!
No, no, no. Well, maybe. Okay!
@Bing, except it would effect what I'd be willing to pay due to resale value (i.e. I would expect others to have a different view).
I know I am sometimes an outlier with how I collect, as I don't so much care about scratches and graffiti. While that's useful for me (I essentially get coins I want for less than you'd expect to pay), I'm aware that it does bother others, therefore the price they would be willing to pay, and the price I would be willing to pay.
Wonderful post, Bing..
