    That's a great starting point, @YoloBagels, but I wouldn't stop there. Personally, I'd probably go on a major numismatic shopping spree (was this ever in doubt for any of us?) buying anything from ancient gold coins to high-end national banknotes, and anything that strikes my fancy.

    Bankrupt or cause CLIO to have a nervous breakdown
    when he goes a month and wins nothing for a change.
    He will think he fell through a time warp into FREAKY FRIDAY.

    An 1804 dollar of the highest quality available, followed by at least one of every U.S. regular, circulating coin made/issued...sort of a super type set.

    I'd probably buy a new bicycle. I've had a flat for weeks now, and I'm too lazy to fix it.

    There are more important matters that would command my attention. The homeless, hunger, the disadvantage. Some where down the line I would think of myself but not before family.

    I would show up at @AncientJoe's house with a big grin on my face and an offer for his entire ancient coin collection...or at least his Eid Mar...okay, and the Vespasian aureus from Pompeii. Then I'd head to the British Museum and see what artifacts they're willing to part with.

    Definitely a better grade Julius Caesar Denarius, multiple greek & roman gold, & of course a few of those lovely works of art greek tetradrachms from the elite engravers.

    AND, I would acquire better grade Henry VIII portrait coins, Liz I, and some others.

    Regarding @potty dollar 1878's question, how about a replica of a Tucker 48? I'd be too nervous about driving an authentic one.

    Well, I will try to find out who owns this Faustina I bronze medallion and to make an offer he cannot refuse, and I would make a weekend party for CT members, Roman style...

    In this case, I hereby offer any potential billionaires to part with the example below for only about the price of a brand-new Tesla. It has nice cabinet toning and comes with an old German auction ticket from the 70s. A true bargain! ;)

    Rom – Gordian III, denar, Adventus-Typ.png
    Gordian III, Roman Empire, AR denarius, 240–241 AD, Rome mint. Obv: IMP GORDIANVS PIVS FEL AVG; bust of Gordian III, laureate and draped, r. Rev: P M TR P III COS P P; Gordian on horseback riding l., raising r. hand and holding spear or sceptre in l. 20mm, 2.66g. Ref: RIC IV Gordian III 81.

    (I saw the coin in the other thread and honestly wondered about what is going on. Mine was about 35$ in 2019.)
