    Picked up a EL Trite from Ionia struck circa 650-600BC
    I have no clue what the obverse design is suppose to be????
    With this new addition, I now have EL/AV coinage from all 28 centuries of coinage.
    The coin weighs 4.63 grams

    An amazing accomplishment. I still say you need to do a thread showing
    all of your collection. I know you are working 18+ plus hours a day at this
    time, but maybe on a rainy day you could start.

    Yeah, I was cutting a clients lawn when a thunderstorm moved in, so now I am at home! First rainy event here in 8 weeks. Worked 67 days straight (dawn too dusk) However there is still time for proxy bids on sixbid, usually just before I head to bed at 11:00PM. Always seems the same old story....so many beautifull coins....never enough $$$$$:(

    What a great collecting milestone. Congratulations Pman!

    If you ever find yourself less busy I would love to see a thread where you post one of your favorites from each century from your collection.

    Great new addition to close out the 28 :)
