    Congrats on your first Greek silver! But be careful: these coins are known to be addictive.

    I very much like this type. They were considered rare until recently, but there seems to have been a larger hoard find. Now is the time to buy one, I reckon.

    Yes it is very addictive. Yeah I was reading about that. This was gifted to me from @Valentinian he said he recently bought a hoard.

    I was looking up the prices of these. They really go up in price. They are such an amazing coin.
