  1. KINGS of THRACE, Macedonian. Lysimachos. 305-281 BC. AR Tetradrachm (30mm, 17.22 g, 1h). Lampsakos mint. Struck 297/6-282/1 BC Can never have too many of these types, lol
  2. Thank you all very much, appreciate the reviews and recommendations!
  3. Hi all, I just wanted to ask your opinion on Aureo and Calico? I have yet to shop with them but I am considering it! How are shipping times? Are they generally fair prices or more on strong side? Safe as well in terms of authenticity? even just a thumbs-up as a recommendation would help! Thank you
  4. Fantastic write up! Domitian is an awesome and underrated Roman figure in my opinion, an excellent Emperor and I always rate him among the top A tier, below the greats of course but still good in his own right. Denarius I got from CNG not long ago, did you know he had some of the highest purity of silver coins? Or so I was told 😛
  5. some Pius coinage from me, Anyone else really like the one with Marcus as Caesar? I always find it cool to see two busts on one coin 😄
  6. A new arrival today A nice addition to my Seleucid set, I know that there is debate on whether or not this is actually Seleucus I Nikator himself, I like to think it is just for collecting sake 😆🤣
  7. Finally got one of these guys, been wanting an athena obv style Alexander stater for quite some time. I'm quite happy I waited though as I'm pleased with this one! MACEDONIAN KINGDOM. Alexander III the Great (336-323 BC). AV stater (19mm, 8.62 gm, 11h). NGC MS 5/5 - 4/5, light marks. Lifetime issue or early posthumous of uncertain mint in western Asia Minor, ca. 332-323 BC
  8. thanks, I think it makes a nice addition!
  9. Thank you very much! That clears that up for me. 😄
  10. Picked this guy up a few weeks ago and just had it arrive now, Quite happy with the style, 16.95 g.; 29,3 mm I can't read German but on the auction description it says Thompson in Festschr. Robinson (1968), S. 171, 43 (Mondsichel) Müller, Lysimachus - HGC 1750b So is it possible that it has a 1968 pedigree? Although I am not quite sure what that means. It has been a fairly successful hunt this month of May and I am looking forward to some more arrivals shortly... a BIG addition as well that I am quite excited to share 😄 Let me know here what you have arriving and anything you are scoping out?
  11. Now that’s awesome! thanks for sharing
  12. This fun photo of a mix of tets and denarii from my collection Does anyone else like to set up pictures like this and pretend you stumbled on a little hoard haha! In the Ancient World around the time of Trajan, what do you reckon you could buy with this? Really makes you wonder! 😛
  13. Seleucid Empire, Antiochos I Soter (281-261 BC) AR Tetradrachm, mint of Magnesia ad Sipylum, 16.73g. Diademed head of Antiochos I facing right. Rev. ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ – ΑΝΤΙΟΧΟY, Herakles, holding club, seated left on rock draped with lion skin, monograms in exergue. I really like this Herakles reverse because it's a bit harder to come across, most of the Seleucids that come up have Apollo as the deity. I was very happy to find this one at auction last year 😄
