    Went to our fall coin club show this past weekend. I visited my favorite ancients dealer to view his selection. He just got a collection in and I was in heaven. I purchased 9, four are Greek and the other 5 Roman. The beauty of each coin just blows me away.

    The photos are not very good and I’m currently swamped with other projects. When I get time I will provide better photos.

    Great pick ups!
    I haven't been to a coin show since 2019 now. Almost 2 full years. I'm looking forward to going to the Baltimore Whitman show next month with FFIVN and hopefully picking up some new ancients.
