    I like both examples even though I do not have the Lampsakos. However I do have the Aeolis Kyme and it is one of my favorites:

    Nice pickups, sorry about the one that got away....

    I think, I will keep the little $$$ I have left for upcoming Triton XXIII/ Heritage Signature event in January.

    I really like those, especially the Lampsakos. I won one this morning too so I’m guessing it was the same auction.

    Congratulations on adding two nice examples of good types to your collection. The Kyme hemiobol is very attractive, and your Lambsakos diobol beats mine by lengths:

    Magna Graecia – Mysien, Lampsakos, diobol, janiform head:Athena.png
    Mysia, Lampsakos, diobol, ca. 400–300 BC. Obv: Janiform female heads. Rev: Head of Athena right, wearing Corinthian helmet, ΛΑΜ around, fly right. 10mm, 1.2g. Ref: SNG France 1190; Baldwin 1924, group B, type I,19.

    Always nice to sink one right before the buzzer goes off!


    Great Janus head and a cool little eagle!

    The smallest coin I picked up this year (and my smallest coin period) is this 19th century coin from Travencore.
