    Another niche. Fallen Horsemen and Fel Temp! It shows a strength of purpose and will. Nice collection for 2018. The Arkarnania and the gaming token are my favorites here. Congrats

    Great coins! That Ptolemy II is beautiful and the Fel Temps are impressive! I’m working toward a fallen horseman mint set and am just missing the hard two.

    Those top 5 compliment your fallen horseman collection wonderfully, the Ptolemy II is totally fantastic very strong strike and the other 4 are all great coins and diverse.

    I love the Ptolemy II, the Athens drachm (not seen so often), the gaming token, and the hilarious Constans portrait from Arles. But the coin that really floors me in this group (and which I hadn't seen before) is the wonderful small bronze from Adramytion. What a haunting and artistic portrait of Zeus! Fantastic coin.

    Very nice additions, Randy, and congrats on completing those sets! The gaming token and Adramytteion bronze are my favorites... I'd love to have those in my collection.

    Thanks all. I think Im leaning toward cracking the Ptolemy out :)

    Trier is a pain, at least for me. Good luck ^_^

    Yeah, Trier and Amiens are the two! I did just get a nice Lyons mint where the barbarian is being speared in the face... which is nice. I'll post it soon.

    Oh and yes, free Ptolemy!
