    This came it the mail today.
    DN CONSTAN-TIVS PF AVG, pearl-diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right, A behind/FEL TEMP RE-PARATIO soldier spearing Horseman, Phrygian helmet, sitting on ground, arm(s) up, A in left field, TS Delta in ex
    Thessalonica 129 scarce.

    I know that it's TS Delta, and that my I have a serious collecting problem, because I have these already, and there is another I am considering on buying as well.

    I won't be of much help since my only advice would be to buy them all ;)

    Most probably there's a rehab center not far from your place. You might give it a try :D

    When it comes to buying a duplicate, I ask what this coin has to offer that upgrades my situation. I have no use for coins missing the mintmark even if it is a certain one unless it really has some offsetting characteristic. I see nothing in the first coin to recommend it. I have pretty much stopped looking at FH coins but I only have four new coins of all types this year. Maybe I'm done, I don't know. Can you explain why you wanted any specific coin? I had two and I can't remember what happened to the first one so I guess I don't miss it. Am I a recovering horse-aholic?

    On the plus side @randygeki once you have the market cornered you'll be able to name your price :happy:

    The OP coin is definitely one I would not recommend but I couldn't resist the low price and being a die match of the other 2. I thought perhaps too about the dies looking slightly less worn when it was struck.

    I think all three of those are reverse die matches! Pretty cool!
