TIF, You scored some fascinating & rare coins this year ! The Cossura bronze deserves 1st place . Do you know anything about the counterstamp on the coin ? The unpacking episode is amusing . Was Ed Waddell just playing with you or is he suffering with extreme insecurity ? I love #7, the Republican denarius. The reverse composition is a product of imagination on steroids' ! Your article on the "Snake Cowboys" was a great read .
@TIF. And what a list!
Hands down that Domitian Sphinx is my favourite. Simply superb.
Thanks for posting those marvellous coins @TIF
I relly love your #3, #4, #5 and #7
The others aren't bad either
@TIF! It's hard to choose favorites! I have always coveted one of these Abduction of Persephone coins to upgrade my humble example of Soaemias from Sebaste, and yours is an excellent example of that reverse type. I like your snake biga denarius, the Domitian/Sphinx obol, and the criocamp "zoo" coin. But most of all, I like your #1: the Isis/Tanit AE 25 of Cossura.
@TIF - particularly like the snake on the horse.
@TIF, you got my blood pumping when I saw that huge box and mentioned bronzes. I love getting huge boxes of ancient coins. I was a bit let down when I saw it was one coin. I was thinking you had joined the dark, dark side as a new buyer of large ancient group lots.
...kool coins & story TIF!...good ta C ya again!
Volteius denarius is fabulous!
@TIF My favorite is all 10 at once. Such a variety of interesting types is appealing in itself. Hope to hear more from you in 2021.
@TIF, you never disappoint!!!....Thank you!
@TIF I really like all of your coins. I agree with @David Atherton, that Domitian Sphinx is amazing. That is a very enviable acquisition!
Experienced this many times myself. A source of endless amusement, and lotsa frustration when I'm in a hurry to see the coin. Still, good to fool the FedEx driver that they are delivering an article of clothing rather than a valuable coin.
wont bid on another Domitian sphinx coin? I will remember that ;-)
Wow, that's some hardcore packaging. I wonder though, are the shipment costs hardcore too?
All great coins, my fav. is the snake biga RR Nice to see a coin so securely packed
May, 2021 bring you many more nice coins.
