    Here is a new Parthian I picked up, this is of Vologases IV.

    Although it isn't perfect, for $40 total, I think it was a decent price.

    I love those classic Portuguese types in general, but that one, with the frosty devices and that subtle rim toning, is really lovely. Congrats.

    Got this today from a friend. I do not collect bullion coins but I do collect Canadian coins and I have never had a reverse proof before. Plus I never turn down free silver. Mapleleaff-horz.jpg

    Napoleon had a really rough time in Spain, failing to decisively destroy the parties guerrilla forces. Spain bled out hundreds of thousands of fighters, ultimately weakening Napoleon's power in the region. Great coin :)

    Here are a few new additions that I got around to photographing today. I have some more research to do on the 1799 Halfpenny. By all accounts, it appears to be a normal currency strike, but the edges are sharp and the obverse signature on the lowest fold is unusual. Although it could just be a die pair I have never seen before. There were a ton of working dies for these pieces.

    Acquired this Mysore 1811-1830 Gold Pagoda in MS62. Well centred and well struck I think and a very good price too:

    @coin_nut though the 1914 has the lowest mintage, the 1913 is actually harder to acquire and goes for more money. I'm still looking for a 1913 and its very hard to find one, even in thailand!

    Bought this on a whim because I didn't have any Swiss Canton coins, and it seemed to be a shoutout to my home state ;)

    Here is a new Greek Silver I picked up.

    I don't get to add Greek silver very often so it's a nice feeling to get one every now and then.
