    Well, after the ransom was paid to almighty FEDEX my coin arrived safely, it was even delivered to my house and not my neighbor's which is a refreshing change.

    What a way to start 2022, and it will be hard to top. After losing out on three separate occasions about 3 years ago on a denarius of this old man, I went in aggressive, probably too aggressive. Here it is, one to tick off the bucket list.

    Until I get an image taken of my own (early next week) I will be subjected to use the auction photo.

    I was smitten by those smooth surfaces even before I realized it was Gordy the First. Wow.

    I say again: wow.

    You weren't kidding!
    2022 is going to be a banner year for you, even if this ends up being your only purchase!

    Great way to start off your year! You will never regret paying more then anticipated. in a year from now your coin will be worth 20+ percent more. I doubt if prices will ever stabilize/ too much demand/ limited supply.
