airhead1983 Posted May 29, 2022 · Member Share Posted May 29, 2022 Hi Everyone, My name is Erin (johndakerftw on CT). I just heard about this great place and thought I’d pop over. I’m a bottom feeder collector of ancient coins from ancient Israel. But, thanks to incredible generosity, I’ve become more of a general collector. My latest purchase is of a coin that I thought was a Shekel of Tyre (one of my top wish list coins). It’s in pretty rough shape, having lived most of the past couple thousand years in the sea. But, once I got it in hand, something caught my EYE. The obverse more closely resembles a Demetrios II tetradrachm rather than the Melquart of the shekel. Its a bummer that it’s not my dream coin, but, I’m going to hold onto it. It’s nice and hefty. I think I’m going to use it as a pocket piece to show others if they express interest in ancients when I’m out and about. Anyway, thanks for having me here! I look forward to meeting new friends and learning from them! Have a great day! Erin 17 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
