@DonnaML Fake Mark Antony Legionary denarius sold for 126 $...
Your comments please ?
Wow. That's more than 25% of my winning bid. As I said before, I hope whoever bought it isn't planning to put it up on ebay next week as a purportedly genuine coin, intending to try to defraud someone into paying $1,000 for it. But perhaps I'm being too cynical!
I didn't bid on anything this time. For whatever reason, there was nothing that really spoke to me.
Same here. The few I thought about looked like they would go high, and sure enough checking the results they were very high. So glad I passed.
I am just waiting for the next Buy or Bid from Berk to be posted.
Pretty sad I find Berk cheaper than Frank nowadays.
I bid on 10 initially, 11 including the 1 book
When I was first introduced to FSR auctions last year, the prices were definitely better than what I found other places. Then again, one could go to a coin show and see coins in person as well as online. Now it seems that a lot of people are at home with not much to do and are buying up coins and jacking up the prices. Sucks for small budget collectors like me.
I believe it may be an obverse die-match to the British Museum specimen:
I forgot about the sale completely today. I bid early and immediately lost 5 coins I rather liked but they went for several times the start price. The Caracalla tet from Alexandria was worth the price it brought but not to me. I tried to convince myself that lot 177 was overstruck on a Nero dupondius but decided it could also be a doublestruck imitation as listed so I did not pursue it. I see I won one lot which may or may not get into the collection depending on how it looks. I had one of very different style and would not have bid had I known I was going to strike out on the better ones.
Two months ago our dishwasher sprung a gusher and soaked the kitchen floor doing several thousands in damage and making us live on subfloor and wash dishes by hand. Today the new dishwasher (last piece of the reconstruction) was installed so I had other things on my mind today. Getting appliances has been 'different' lately. Insurance paid a lot of it but I hope this is a once in a lifetime experience.
I believe so, but he'll send you an invoice.
He replied back almost immediately after I sent an email asking about the PayPal email to send payment to (talk about quick!). Thought he’d reply in the morning so I figured I’d ask here also in the meantime (then I ninja-edited my post when I got his answer ).
I’ve always wondered. Is it just him or does he have staff that helps him?
I think it's just him.
I put numbers on a few of them and there were a few low bid items on there that I ended up liking. I definitely was tempted to chase a few of you S.O.B.'s.
Just emailing with him gives one a taste of the good ol' days, much better than the e-auction clicking. I chuckled for days to myself about the stable Genius deity description.
