Looked like a nice variety! My thoughts went something like this: "The tiny gold Islamic piece and the Larissa drachm are surely worth quite a bit, no? and I don't have either! Hmm, what is that intriguing yellowish piece near the bottom right? Oooh, I like that Diocletian in the middle too. Sweet Aurelian portrait there, and a sestertius right next to it? what's that triskeles right next to the Diocletian, is that Lycian? Look, an FH to show Randy! ooh, I've been wanting one of those Armenian silvers, also a bearded Constantine..." etc. etc. No this wasn't @zumbly's amazing lot which included an Antony and an Otho denarius (!!), but still... definitely not run-of-the-mill! On the other hand, what was underneath the pile of neat looking stuff? a bunch of duds? The photo totally sucked me in, and I placed a bid at $16 U.S. per coin (including fees, exchange, & shipping)... and lo and behold, I won the lot! 83 coins in all. Awesome!! Wait, 83 COINS!?!?... HOLY YIKES AND A HALF, WHAT DID I JUST DO?!?! If you're curious to know how I made out (like a bandit? or sucked in, hook, line & sinker?), if you'd like to take a better look at some of the coins in the lot, see what invisible mysteries they hide underneath them, or just pretend you're digging through the pile yourself, this is the thread for it. I have now photographed almost all of the coins individually and will take requests. Describe where it is in the group photo and I'll show you the coin in all its glory, or all its shame. Meanwhile I'll also gradually post some of my favourites, plus some of the duds. (Yes, there WERE duds, but I won't yet say how many...) I'll do my best to keep up, but please forgive me if there are times when I'm incommunicado! You're also invited to post anything related to what you see in the group photo, and also as the hidden stuff comes up. (Which I suppose probably means post anything at all...?) ALSO... if you help me with one of the coins (ID, further info I didn't know, or any interesting tidbit) I'll put your name in a hat and do a draw. Winner gets one of the coins. (NOT a dud, I promise!) I hope this thread captures and passes on some of the fun I had!
