    Seeing my name up there preparing to do battle with all those other illustrious CT members had quite an effect on me.

    Excuse while I put on a pair of fresh trousers.

    Wow! @Severus Alexander. Excellent job! The auction looks incredible. Good luck, everyone. There are a few ex-C.A. coins in there. :)

    It's about time :mad:! This looks like an exciting auction :D. Excellent variety, great photos, detailed descriptions, & low starting bids :cool:. Don't forget, prices are in low value Canadian dollars :p. I'm submitting bids as soon as my doctor's appointment is over later today :happy:.

    What a glorious way to wake up!
    I am already figuring which of our Diadochi I will have to "get out of the way" first. These coins are going to...

    I am not invited to the party. Well I will not participate uninvited! :shifty:

    Joking! I will pause my acquisitions until September at least.
    Best of luck to all colleagues who have some goals in this auction!

    I got way too excited when I saw my name on the scroll!

    Then I realized who I'm up against and the only thing I could think was:


    This will be my first AMCC auction and I am super excited to participate though I full expect to be blown out of the galaxy by the rest of you :)

    I was delighted, yet perplexed to see I lead off the list of "Auction Warriors." I haven't participated in a non-eBay auction since 1995, when everything was in paper catalogues and US Postal Service! And even that was for world countermarks/chopmarks, not ancients.

    But still, I am really honored. I have followed the AMCC auction link, and I admit that I am tempted - looks like a lot of good stuff with appealing starting bids. Even if I sign up, I'm such a cheapskate that I doubt I'll pose much of a threat to the upcoming battle. Maybe I should just declare myself a non-combatant or pre-surrender. What a lousy Jedi I'd make...

    Good luck, brave warriors!

    FINALLY!!! Geez, I've been waiting for this such a long time. Then I realized: oops, magic isn't real! Better get busy... :oops:

    You guys saw it before I did... the email that it was up came while I was sleeping. @Claudius_Gothicus has already pointed out a bunch of errors to me (thanks, CG!), please pm me if you find more! (It's inevitable there will be some in such a big catalogue.)

    Auctions in CAD are made for cheapskates! :D

    Yes, there are a dozen or so rarities salted in there for the eagle-eyed. I hope it makes the auction more fun. :happy:

    Thanks for the shout-out, Ocat!

    You guys are my coin-friends, but on July 24 when I am bidding, I will have to follow the wise words of Darth Sidious :troll:


    Thanks @Severus Alexander and great work! The auction looks fantastic!
