I see we have very similar tastes in coins. We should coordinate before auctions so as not to run the price up on each other. I was reviewing your Greek coins last night and I was amazed at how many we had in almost the same condition from the same dies of the same type. It's nice to find a numismatic soulmate.

Some of us do it informally, you two however should make it S.O.P.


This coin is a perfect example why.
