    After much staring at the mailbox waiting, the coin I won from @Theodosius finally arrived:

    Severus Alexander, AD 222-235.
    Magistrate Umbrius Tereventius.

    Nice coin!

    But, what do you mean by "won" from another Cointalk member? Like an auction? Have I been missing out on something around here? :(

    Oh, sorry, probably not the best choice of words... :oops: What I meant was that I was one of the winners of a drawing here.

    He won it in this drawing.

    @Theodosius was the donor of the goodies and I was the master of ceremonies/expeditor. But I made one tiny goof with @Abramthegreat's mailing address on the envelope, so it got lost in the system a while before it returned to me here. I'm glad it finally reached its proper destination.
