    Hey everyone,

    Just thought I'd share my first Tauler & Fau win. It is a miliarense of Constantius II. I'm very excited about it because I've been looking for this type for about a year and a half. Over the past year, I've seen decent examples from the Constantinople mint pop up (at a dealer and in auctions), but I've been holding out for one from Thessalonica because I prefer the style of this mint. So far, I've passed up a few examples from Thessalonica because they were either a lower grade, or had other sorts of problems. I did not think I would win today's example....but I did!!!! :D:D:D

    Could anyone fill me in on what to expect when shipping from Spain? I understand that there is a 4-6 week wait process where an export license must be granted from the cultural property office. Am I required to fill out any sort of form? Also, I'm hoping Tauler offers shipping via Fedex.

    Thanks for your help!

    Anyways, here it is!

    I won a coin in the 3 November Tauler & Fau auction and received it exactly 2 weeks later. I'm in the UK, so it didn't have so far to travel, but there was no paperwork or delay. Getting coins from the US is a much longer wait, although it can't be the distance, as anything from Canada arrives very quickly.

    I'm in Canada, so I'm assuming it would take a little longer. Usually with Switzerland or UK via Fedex it takes 1-2 weeks when customs is accounted for. But I don't think these countries require export licenses.

    My two experiences with Tauler & Fau have been excellent... but I do recall shipping to seem to take a while:yawn:
