    I noticed \Aureo & Calico had this unsold item on offer for starting price (1200) euros.
    After reading Spanish description/ I bought it. Most of the medieval St. John types are in deplorable shape from Spanish mints. This one was graded MBC=VF
    AV Florin d'oro ND
    Mallorca Mint
    Marti I 1396-1410 King of Aragon/ Valencia/ Mallorca/ Sicily

    Always nice to have a coin that is unique (have 6 so far) lot_65aa6abc84ec37792de22c40_images_lrkm8x75chx9awz7.jpg

    Some Nepalese gold coins are nice, but they are way too expensive for my liking.

    Agreed I got a good deal on the one above because the dealer had no idea what it was.
    He is a metals guy. But still I paid pretty hefty for a coin that weighs less than a gram.

    Are you sure your payment went through? Because the option to buy it still shows up for me, while if you had bought it should say "This item is out of stock".

    Well done. :)

    There is a real feeling of satisfaction when you pick up the only known example. I know because I have 2 or 3 dozen examples. The only down side is that come the time to sell, unless a unique coin is from a widely collected series, the demand is limited. Something a majority of collectors will not appreciate.

    They tend to be off the market for 5, 10, 20 years or more and and for most are essentially unobtainable. They often go under the radar to the benefit of the knowledgeable - just as you took the trouble to read the blurb.

    Seem's the biggest problem is getting new collectors to a series, That seems like the time to sell. I hope the coin above doesn't get sold for 60 years. I will be long gone. I am just a caretaker. There are many of these coins that never see the market, and still haven't been seen.

    Yeah/ I still have NEVER seen a AV Solidus of Eastern Roman Emperor Leontius I 484-88AD. Sear states there are 5-7 exs known.
    I remember back in 1990s when NFA auctioned off a MS aureus of usurper Saturninus in FDC quality for 400K a bargain.
