    So did anyone win anything in the Obolos 19 auction from Nomos that ended last Saturday? I managed to snag two coins at not too bad prices.

    Still waiting for the invoice: won 2 - one 200 CHF above what I wanted to pay, second - 120 CHF above what I wanted to pay...Did you get your invoice yet? Care to share what you won?

    I have not gotten my invoice yet. Have you? I won an Anastasius solidus and a Balbinus denarius.

    Nope, still waiting - they told me I should be receiving later today or tomorrow.

    As always, prices were crazy - last second bids - classic CoinTalker moves:)

    prices will continue to raise, given concern around inflation- today’s Tech shares drop confirmed that concern.

    I agree. The price of Byzantine coins has been exploding recently.

    Thanks! I've been looking for a Balbinus denarius for some time and I was happy to get one at a decent price.

    I was just about to post I bought two items but haven't received an invoice yet, but as I was typing the email came in.

    My invoice just came in as well. This is my first time bidding at a Nomos auction and I was pleasantly surprised at the hammer prices as compared to say, CNG.

    This was my first time bidding with Nomos, and I was very pleased with my "haul." My top priority was this shield coin of Pyrrhos. They don't come up too commonly at auction, and I like that this one was well centered and readable, if a bit worn. I think I pretty much paid the fair price.

    I was so pleased with this one, that I went through the auction again to check for anything interesting and came across this Vespasian. I didn't have any Vespasian, though the 12 Caesars aren't my core collecting area. So I put in what I considered a relatively low bid and to my surprise as the seconds ticked by, no one else placed a bid! Then, just after it hit zero, someone put in their max bid that was just under mine.

    According to Nomos, this commemorates the victory in Judea, so it at least came in a lot less than the typical Judea Capta coin. I probably shouldn't have bought it, in order to finance higher priority coins, but I'll enjoy telling the history.
