    @furryfrog02: the tracking number showed it in California dated this morning, but was delivered in Ohio 3 hours later. I think the estimated date of delivery maybe a little off since it was to be delivered late NEXT week.

    I neglected to note that this Maximinus BONO GENIO (lot 324) is ex my collection. I bought it from Robert Kokotailo of Calgary Coin back in the late 1980s. I'm happy you're pleased with your wins, @Arcane76! I especially love the reverse on your Gordian. :)

    @Severus Alexander: I have been steadily adding to my collection from various auctions etc. But your auction yielded some of my favorites. I am happy to have different CT members coins now in my collection. This forum has really made collecting even more fun! Thank you for this auction @Severus Alexander it was a blast!

    I was the underbidder on that one, and precisely wanted it because of its reverse. Great acquisitions

    Guess what came in the mail...

    And I'm still kicking myself for missing the first half of this auction. Someone had posted about it starting at noon EST and my brain decided to forget the EST!:jimlad::facepalm:
    Only one of my prebids withstood yalls onslaught
    200-20.gif

    That said, the one that made it was a beautiful rarity that I was and still am VERY excited about:
    2024075_1624959157.l.jpg
    LUCANIA, Thurium as Copia (193-150 BCE) AE As. 9.40g, 22mm.

    Very rare and in fine style.

    Here's the CNG coin
    3740009.jpg

    And the NAC from the same dies as mine:
    5745.l.jpg
    Wonderful examples, but so is mine and at a fraction of the cost and from a CT friend:D

    Here are a few more that I didn't have room for at the top of the thread.
    Another super cool artistic style of Herakles:
