    I found the list interesting, but most of us would probably appreciate a list where all the coins cost under $10,000. Maybe even $5,000.

    This never occurred to me. I'm not sure that reverse design is meant to be a crescent moon, but now I'll have a hard time seeing it as anything else!

    No one asked, but here are my 10...
    ...which I would promptly sell all but one of, and use the proceeds to buy a few hundred exemplary ancient coins. :)

    Called a proofreader. That said, I appreciated his story and the interesting history, even if I don't agree with all of selections...but several of them for sure...and after all that you gotta give him a typo or two.

    Well, I did put a few on there that fall into that category.

    I'll try again later, with a slightly broader net of challenging but obtainable coins.

    I am in full agreement with @GeorgeM on the 1792 Half Disme. This one should absolutely be in anyone's top ten...... I wonder why he chose to include the mythical 1964 Peace Dollar. That coin doesn't even exist that anyone knows of.
