I've ordered from CGB twice before, and both are show-stopper coins for me. To be honest, I haven't ordered from them as much because I find their prices on the high side, but I'd been eyeing the coin below for some time and, since I noticed I wasn't far from their store, I decided to see it in person. The guy at CGB was very nice, though I'd envisioned seeing display cases full of cool looking coins, so I was a bit shocked to see a counter, some bars, and a computer. It makes sense. They have a lot of valuable coins so they wouldn't want to keep them within reach. To view the coin I had to give them the stock number from my phone, then they passed it through a safety box like I was at a drive-through pharmacy. I assume for a higher value coin they would have asked for an ID. I must admit that I went back and forth a bit about buying this Prusias II, but it wasn't that much money and I figured it was more worthwhile buying something I truly wanted vs an Eiffel Tower replica I'd feel bad about throwing away someday. When I took it home and photographed it, I have to admit that I really like it. The centaur looks nice even though the portrait is worn. On a different note, I was happy to photograph the Porte de Mars in Reims. This is the largest surviving Roman arch in the world and was saved from WWI only because it was built into a castle. When the castle was torn down, they found the arch and left it. Overall, the trip was a lot of fun. Below are some more photos I took. You can see the full set here.
