Roman Collector Posted January 27 · Patron Share Posted January 27 A couple of weeks ago, Frank sent out an e-mail informing his customers of his bargain coins fixed price list. I knew I had to order quickly because the coins are priced to MOVE! And move, they did. Even though I replied to Frank within 20 minutes, one of the three coins I was interested in had already sold. I was, however, able to pick up these two coins for the grand total of USD 31.42!! That's including postage and PayPal fees. Sure, the coins aren't exactly FDC, but for less than $16 each, I'm not complaining. Did any of you buy any from his list? Let's see them!! Of course, feel free to post anything you feel is relevant!
