Worst ever cost to shipping ratio ?! (Cyzicus SKM mintmark)

Recommended Posts

Hah, well, I just won coin below in today's N&N London auction, for the princely sum of £6, and shipping is going to cost £35 !

I've got to think this combination of a dirt cheap coin and super-expensive shipping (1:6 ratio) has to be hard to beat! Anyone?

I'm actually quite happy with the total cost, even thought the cost:shipping ratio is horrendous !

I bought it for the odd "SKM" Cyzicus mintmark which I've written about before:

Interesting coin! Never seen that mintmark before.

I always forget how much postage is from them - not sure how they can charge £35 postage for what should cost £15 - £20.

Lots of lots went very cheaply from them today (pages of £2 - £4 sales), but I entered the auction late and only managed to win a small group of silver.

Nice pick up regardless of the excessive shipping costs.

Certainly had some generic bust types in that period. Picked up this Licinius I last week for the extravagant price of 2 Euros 40 cents, and could be his twin brother
