buuuut with the current prices at which some coins are selling, their cheapie 12% buyers fees and cheapie 10 euro shipping, I figured I would try my hand on a couple of coins that I am familiar with (and really liked) and see if I could save a little dough... I think you know that means the first one is a Macedonian shield type (Vespy must've been on a diet while visiting Macedon...and was the trip by boat? He looks a little green around the gills): MAKEDON. Koinon . Vespasian ( 69 - 79 AD). Ae. Obv: Laureate head left . ΑΥΤΟΚΡΑΤ [ΩΡ ΚΑΙΣΑΡ] ΟΥΕΣΠΑΣΙΑΝΟΣ. Rev: ΚΟΙΝΟΝ ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΩΝ. Makedonian Shield. RPC 333. SNG COP. 1336. Rare. Condition: Extremely Fine. Weight: 8.82 g. Diameter: 23 mm. The second is an upgrade of a type I just love and needed to upgrade badly (this one sure did get circulated but nothing like my old dinger that's reverse made it look like Roma was pooping a couple small canoes and not sitting on shields): ANONYMOUS. Denarius (115-114 BC). Rome. Obv: ROMA. Helmeted head of Roma right; X (mark of value) to left. Rev: Roma seated right on pile of shields, holding spear; birds in flight to upper left and right; to lower right, Lupa Romana standing right, head left, suckling the twins Romulus and Remus. Crawford 287/1. Condition: Very fine. Weight: 3.87 g. Diameter: 19 mm. Does anybody know anything about this auction house and or were darned fool enough as myself to give them a go on their maiden voyage (please share those coins if you did)? And please post anything you feel is relevant!
