    Seller dropped the price from $1,500. I sent a question as to how they know it is 95% copper...

    Wow! And $10 in Ebay bucks too. I'm sure someone will snap it up really quick. :)

    My favorite thing to do when I come across listings like that is to offer the seller a complete roll of the same coin for that price. I wonder why I never hear back from them.

    He must come across Etsy during his searches...

    Next, ask him if he has a XRF print out to confirm it is exactly those percentages.

    So, at $1000 because "it's old," that's a little more than $10 a year since its manufacture. I'll sell him this penny-sized bronze coin for $17,000 because it's 1700 years old:

    [​IMG]
    Crispus, AD 316-326.
    Roman AE centenionalis, 2.93 g, 18.2 mm, 6 h.
    Siscia, AD 320-321
    Obv: IVL CRISPVS NOB C, laureate head, right.
    Rev: CAESARVM NOSTRORVM around wreath enclosing VOT X; ЄSIS* in exergue.
    Refs: RIC 165; Cohen 44; RCV 16772.

    So I could sell a roll of 1921 Morgans for $1000 EACH. They're NINETY NINE YEARS OLD!
