You are right: They had it in the description on their own website but not on their VCoins listing (and all that counts is the listing where you ordered it).
I've noticed then doing that before when selling on multiple platforms -- somehow they miss a section when copying & pasting the description. Their mistake.
No big deal, they said they would refund on Monday. I will drop them a line about the issue on Vcoin. this could stop it from happening again.
@The Meat man if I’m not mistaken?
I enjoy owning coins from the collections of friends I’ve met online. I have a small sub-collection of such coins.
Here is an Augustus, Ex JAZ.
I've got some of the Caius & Lucius Denarii (though sadly I sold my best one). For now, my favorite Augustus portrait coin is on this Divus August Dupondius:
Roman Imperial. Gaius (Caligula), in the name of Divus Augustus, Æ Dupondius (29.5 mm, 16.57 g, 6h), Rome mint, 37-41 CE.
Obv: DIVVS AVGVSTVS / S – C. Radiate head of Augustus left.
Rev: CONSENSV · SENAT · ET · EQ · ORDIN · P · Q · R ·. Statue of Caligula (or Augustus?) seated left on curule chair, holding branch.
Ref: RIC I 56 (Gaius); Cohen 87; BMC 88; MIR 11-5
Prov: Ex Collections Archer Huntington (1870-1955), American Numismatic Society [Acc. No. 1001.1.22981] & Hispanic Society of America [same No.].
Notes: There's a long running debate about whether the reverse (or obverse, also a debate!) figure seated on the curule is Augustus or Caligula. In my view, it's clearly Caligula.
Beautiful Nemausus coin. I actually got one recently, I'd say about Fair condition. I need to take pictures some time.
