At one time, CNG was a partner. I don’t know if that still is the case
Awesome! After reading a bit of their website and such I'm gonna take this post down. Thanks for the reaffirmation though!
Better stay away for the rest of us...I mean to avoid getting ripped off
Since you cannot take a post down you may want to simply change the OP to a less accusing statement, like, "Has anyone used auction house "X"? If so, how was your experience?"
But that's just what I'd do... oh, that's right. I got this rare, provenanced, beauty from them as well:
Here is one I bought from them.

Ditto what everyone said . My avatar coin came from Nomos.
Two more favorites from Nomos pictured below.
Sorry, I had to edit a mismatch on the 1st coin.
Oh my... @Al Kowsky The first reverse you posted is superb. The eagle is animated in wonderful style. Wow...what a talented engraver. That reverse is a true work of art.
If you would have read the "About us", it would have answered all your questions, in my opinion it looks very professional, not even close of looking like a scam.
Agreed. I worry this is another troll post (also written by a newbie that posted on the last trolls threads). I will not be posting on it anymore, despite how much I LOVE Nomos

I always wanted one of the Syracuse tetradrachms minted during the period when the artists signed their coins as I feel that this was a watershed moment in the history of numismatics. Before these coins the Greek artists were still trying to break free from the shackles imposed from the earlier archaic period but afterwards one can observe a great awakening of very naturalistic imagery which seems to spread very quickly throughout the Greek world. I often wonder if this is one of the legacies of the Peloponnesian War. Not only would men returning from the siege of Syracuse 415-413 BC returned home with some of these coins but the Syracusan navy was active as well in the Aegean Sea for almost a decade afterwards.
