    Obviously this sale's expert is not a specialist
    1 ) this coin does not look "uncirculated", judging from the pics
    2 ) it is not Roman, it is not "Brutus (44-42 BC)" It is a Geto-Dacian gold coin imitating a Roman denarius type. If the exergue was legible, you'd find KOΣΩΝ ...

    I ask for interest...

    Is this really a (old?) original NGC Capsule? I never see this style. Never see the ancient grade "Brilliant Uncirculated" at a NGC Box description. And like GinoLR says - I can't believe NGC set the Title description to "Roman-Brutus". In first time it was an uncertain "Geto-Dacian-Thrace" mint .... Brutus was possible, but more a wish for us seller :D for a interesting offer.

    This was done pre-NGC ancients, so their expertise wasn't in ancient coins at that time.

    The price it went for is a good price for a collector, not for a reseller. The only reason I bid on it was if there was meat on the bone, I could flip it and buy a Roman coin I want.

    If it's ok to say something as a dealer - in my opinion, the price was ok.

    Better condition examples are around 1.800-2.000 Euro, extremely good examples more around 2.500 Euro.

    About 3-4 weeks ago there was a worse specimen than this one at an auction I was also interested in - this coin sold for 1,300 USD (hammer price, without fees!). Hence my frank opinion - the price reflects the current prices in the sale and is perfectly fine.
