Here is my personal top 10 of 2022 in the category: "how could I have been so stupid to give these coins away and why didn't I idiot keep them?" ūüėĄ¬†

What do you think - which coin should I have kept this year and not sold and rather kept?

#7, which is missing from the poll.  I like the toning.

Thanks - I copy the answers false - and yes #7 was lost. I edit it. Thanks for this information!

 

And yes ... the coin looks really like the picture - I give it a regular customer from me and I know, it will be in good hands. But it's very rare get a republican Coin in this dark and rainbow colors. So I dont know why I give it away.

I'm partial to 

Number #4; Lucius Septimius Severus Pertinax Gold Stater

I think you may mean seller remorse rather than you had given any of those great coins away but how could you do either? I'll never own an ancient gold coin unless somebody gives me one. LOL, and that isn't going to happen. 

I'm still a bit of a bottom feeder, those all look like dream coins to me.

I would never make any money if I was a coin dealer, I just wouldn't want to let them go.

They are all great, and though not a coin I know much about, I really like number two on your list. A very appealing portrait. Number four also very attractive.

Anyway, hope you made a profit!

P. de Sion, you posted a wonderful group of coins¬†ūüėä! Being a dealer & letting a beautiful or important go may not be easy ‚ėĻÔłŹ¬†since most of us develop¬†an emotional attachment to our coins. But look at it this way, the marketplace is so vast finding other coins that will "tickle your fancy" is inevitable¬†ūüėć. As long as you keep a photo file of the coins you sold you can always review them with fond memories¬†ūüėČ. Of the 10 coins you posted #3, the denarius of Julia Maesa is my favorite ūü§©. The coin is well struck, is in near mint state, both dies are finely engraved, & the coin has dark, attractive toning. The portrait depicts an aged woman of strength & determination who played an important role in the Severan dynasty.
