This big bronze beauty arrived yesterday (finally). This is the first coin I have purchased from a European auction.. it was an interesting experience. - Zeus Numismatics. I had been searching for a nice follis of Justinian for some time... My requirements were simple: a well centered coin with as much "face detail" as possible (while being affordable) - also the coin HAD to be larger than 40mm. I wanted a very big bronze! Followed some excellent advice I had read here... I created a spreadsheet calculating the Buyer's Fee, shipping etc - and knew my top bid prior to the auction. I was willing to go to $90 GBP ($124 USD) on this coin.. after prebids the "live" bidding started at $70 GBP at auction. I quickly bid $75 GBP and surprisingly to me that price held! So price worked out to $103 USD. With Buyers fee (10%), PayPal fee (4.5%), and Registered Shipping ($15 GBP) the price topped out at $101 GBP.. so $139 USD. Did I do well? There are cheaper options on VCoins to be sure - but none met my outlined criteria as fully as this coin. There are also similar coins with prices over $400 USD. I think I paid a very fair price (not a steal by any means) and was very happy to get the coin I wanted. One thing I learned... you may pay $15 GBP for "registered mail" delivery.. but you cannot track the shipment... last tracking note was when the coin left Belgium on March 3rd... arrived at my door March 26th... those 23 days were a worrying void of no information... just hope. I really thought I would see a tracking note on the acceptance of a registered letter once Canada Post received the coin.. but no. However it finally arrived. It was also well packaged - another worry of mine. The sellers photo was also a good representation. Sellers photo: My quick cell phone photo today: Byzantine Empire, Justinian I (527-565) AE follis Condition: Very Fine Weight: 23.4 gram Diameter: 42.3 mm Zeus Numismatics, Budget Auction 15, Lot#716 Overall I am very happy with the coin, the price and the auction house (although the wait was a bit stressful). This is now my biggest bronze - an amazing feeling in hand!
