The Historical Scholar Collection brought out the "high rollers" yesterday. There was nothing in the auction I could afford, nevertheless, it was a treat seeing so much interesting & rare material on the auction block ☺️. Pictured below are some of the coins that caught my attention with prices realized 🤓.

$28,800.00  This is one of the highly prized "Crucifixion Shekels.

The Caligula is one of the most ridiculous auction prices I've seen in a long time. I hope it won't end up being repaired and returned to the market. I was outbid on everything; certainly an illogical sale in many places!

I can actually imagine a Caesar elephant worth that kind of money or more. The problem I have is that the example in question is badly flawed, lacking even a complete name.

What an poorly executed elephant, notice its unusual proportions and look at the tentative carving in head, trunk and ears, details rendered with blobs.

Look at Vitellius denarius $5,500

And have you seen the Domitian Minerva denarius?

No - I don't want to badmouth the coin. It is certainly the most beautiful Domitian denarius of this type that I have seen! It really is a superb, super great coin! I would consider myself lucky to have such a specimen in my collection.

But over 4,000 USD?

Some of the coins struck by traveling mints look almost barbaric 🙄.

I know you collect coins in this conditions. 
 

But would you pay what I consider an exorbitant price?

Such beautiful coins have their price. Not at all. But I personally find over 4,000 exorbitant. 

But of course it's not my money. And I can only speak for myself.

P. de Sion, I do have many NGC star* coins, but all except a few were acquired raw & got a star* designation when I got them slabbed ☺️. I have acquired some coins with a star* designation that sold for bargain prices, but not many. As some collectors & dealers have reported, Japanese & Chinese collectors love star* coins 😍 & will pay huge premiums for them.
