Two of those coins from that search I have owned at one time. Small world!
I believe the world of ancient coin collectors is a pretty small world, yes. How many may there be of us? 15-20 000? Or even less?
500$ my azz lol
This coin hammered @Auction for $550 Sep. 2019 -- Stephen Album Rare Coins.
Are you expecting that price to be higher or lower?
Indeed! And "demand" is a strong driver of value. I paid $1K for mine over 5 years ago. And I have not a single regret about the price tag despite the visible flaws.
