Seems like they are now having to reassure me, the buyer, and possibly cover their own buns, by sending me, with my purchase, this declaration that governments whom have/had nothing to do with (except for maybe a few scraps of ancient DNA) the societies and the people of their region of living have no right stealing back what I reasonably purchased to use for their own nefarious means! Hmpfff Ok, to get off my soap box, here's 1 of the three show stoppers I recieved (I've already shown you the Philip V Macedonian in a separate thread https://www.cointalk.com/threads/ou...hilip-and-perseus-from-ancient-greece.368506/). And I CANNOT wait to share the third Roman coin... But, to keep it legal, here's a crazy unique Macedonian shield coin of PYRRHUS!!! Oh, you've seen the type before. Maybe. Yeah, on Saturday I sneakily snuck up from under everyone's noses a retrograde reverse of this highly desirable and sought after all time great general for chicken scratch! A type I cannot find another example of immediately. Oh yeah, he was Alexander the great's 2nd cousin on Olympia's side. Why yes, he was Hannibal's 2nd favorite/greatest general, wedged between, Alexander and Scipio. And yes(!), he DID chase the Roman's, in their PRIME, off the field of battle... twice... much to Pyrrhus consternation. Creating a personal favorite word reference, a pyrrhic victory Kings of Macedon. Uncertain mint. Pyrrhos (of Epiros) 287-285 BC. Bronze Æ 18 mm., 3,17 g. very fine Please post your comments, so long as they are accompanied by shield coins, coins of or related to Pyrrhus or any thoughts on this silly, frustrating aaand concerning notice recieved... with a cool coin pic of course!
