    Nice haul from Bing! Just wondering why the Papius is fake? It looks good to me, but I am easily fooled.

    Great coins. I particularly like the Gordian III; it has such interesting character.

    Those L. Papius fakes are so dangerous. I'm no expert, but the style looks totally authentic to me. I assume it's a match of one of those on the fakes boards.

    Most, if not all, my Greek and RR coins will remain in my collection for a while at least. I have a large collecting focus encompassing Greek, RR and up through mid second century AD. There are some in the later years I will keep, but most I wish to let go to someone who will appreciate them more than me.
