    It took a little time to find a plate and a coin, but I succeeded, so here it is. Ketchup anyone?

    What? Oh...I guess a coin that appears in a reference is more appropriate.


    Over the past couple of years I've purchased Celtic coinage that is listed in Lanz's reference: Kelten im Osten. Gold und Silber der Kelten in Mittel und Osteuropa. Sammlung Lanz. (München, 1997).

    Here is one of the purchases, Lanz 768:

    Celts in Eastern Europe AR Tetradrachm. Kapostal Type. Circa 2nd - 1st century BC. Celticised, laureate and bearded head of Zeus to right / Stylised rider wearing crested helmet on horseback to left; crescent before, horizontal figure-of-eight below. Kent/Mays, BMC I pl. 22, S93 (same dies); cf. Göbl, OTA pl. 39, 484/1 var.; Lanz 768 (this coin). 13.17g, 26mm, 12h.

    Very Fine. Rare.

    From the Hermann Lanz Collection; this coin published in M. Kostial, Kelten im Osten - Gold und Silber der Kelten in Mittel- und Osteuropa - Sammlung Lanz (Staatlichen Münzsammlung München, 1997).

    The coin arrived today! Excellent, fast shipping from GB to Canada!

    I was floored when I actually held the coin in my hand. It is an excellent example.

    The brown patina is amazing.
