Post your TOP 10 purchases for 2022 !

This coin is not bad at all. Amastris type is scarcer than Amisos.

2022 has been a very productive year for me, in regards to buying ancient coins (101 coins and I hope I'll grab something in a December auction). I will have difficulties in choosing the Top 10, so I can't pick just one.

I need to get a gruesome coin like yours, either your type or the republican denarius with a horse rider carrying a severed head! 

In regards to my purchase, I've already made my top 10 list for this year, although I prefer the look of them gathered in a group shot!

Nice idea for a thread, but the season is coming for everyone to posting their "top X of the year" (replace the X with 3, 5 or 10), so I will only add one here, as I don't want to spoil my own year list 🙂
