Could not have gone to a better suited owner.
So happy this wonderful EID MAR found a loving home!
@AncientJoe ! I look forward to your pics and write-up.
It’s a fun read. Jamie’s got some other interesting books also.
I was interested in their aes grave hand (with sickle) / grain, but not at the hammer price. At least it was the 3rd lot of the day and I did not have to wait for a time to bid.
This brings to mind the series of threads "What your budget buys" on CoinTalk (cf. https://www.cointalk.com/threads/what-your-budget-buys-30-edition.302412/).
I think we need to add another thread to this series: "What your $400K+ buys."
My house and something more even...
@AncientJoe on acquiring this coin of important historical interest.
@Barry Murphy got a quote in.
@AncientJoe! Fabulous coin!
Thanks for the link @Mat .
The article by IAN RANDALL FOR MAILONLINE says the coin is cast -
Over two millennia old, the token is one of three of the same design known to have been cast in gold, making it the 'holy grail' for ancient coin collectors, experts said.He used the same word to describe EID MAR denarii -
Nearly 100 of such 'Ides of March' coins are known, according to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation — however, most are cast in silverDo they know something we dont? Or.... do we know something Ian does not?
Congratulations on you Victory. I don't collect Ancients but your collection is Fantastic! A pleasure to see it.
Yes, I thought so too.
Oh, what a disappointment !
You should reconsider, I would really like the guy who bought it to be someone I know
Agreed. However, whenever I GOOGLE various Ancient coin questions, MANY times Coin Talk pops up, and various conversations are shown. If the Daily Mail googled this subject, the Thread may had popped up to the top of their search, especially since it is a recent discussion. You, being an Influencer, would had been quoted from this public forum. Unfortunately, how the info without a currency is interpreted (Dollars or Pounds), would be skewed towards their backgrounds as Pounds.
