Benefactor kirispupis Posted February 16 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted February 16 Curious what everyone picked up or didn't get. For me, I bid on ten coins and won seven, including my top three - though I wound up paying more than I would have preferred. I'm not sure if the market for Greek bronzes is heating up, or if I'm just in contention for tougher coins now. This was one of my top targets. Yes, IMHO I paid too much but it was a high priority since I'll be visiting Epidauros in a few weeks and would like to have photos of the ruins along with a coin on my site. I also finally picked up a Kamnaskires III tet, which will go in my "Kingdoms After Alexander" collection as a representative for Elymais. I'm not posting it here because I'm not a fan of Roma's photo, but I've been eyeing these for some time and am very happy with the one I got. It seems that Roma's been given a hoard of these, since they've been listing two to three at every auction for some time now. Maybe two years ago these issues were pricy, but they've come down significantly with the greater supply. I'm not sure how many Roma has, but at some point I'd imagine the hoard will dry up and prices will go back up. My other top two choices will deserve separate posts later. They're both important for "mini-collections" I've formed within my "cities" collection. One is from a very rare mint on a Greek island that had two mints. Since I already have the other one, I've completed the set! The other is for a mini-collection I've been working on for some time, and with this addition I'm now only missing one coin. 9 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
