In short, I latched on to these coins as they are what the common man would have used in Greece and far beyond, during the Hellenistic age, when and after Alexander the Great was busy conquering the unknown world, as they did simply commerce. "Got some spare change?" a drunken grizzled old vet might have asked a young well off passer by. Some of these coins are surely what they would have received from a more than generous individual who was on the good side of the fates in regards to luck... I often get asked, "What's all the hubbub about with the Macedonian shield coins?" Well, there it is. Miniatures of what many a man went into battle sporting, and also the last thing that many a man saw before they met their untimely demise... I know of plenty that I do not have. So please, whether it is a coin that you see I have that you want to share or one that you don't see, please share it or anything that you feel. I LOVE these coins and love to read and talk about them.
