Ok, I am a little p*ssed now. These last coins are hitting close to home.


One of the first two coin types I looked at when I started, and I never, ever, ever, never saw one this nice.


I am waiting for Rod Serling to step out of the Shadows and introduce me to the plot behind this nightmare.

The lettering is so clear it is like a lesson on the Phoenician alphabet. They needed to buy some vowels.

Excellent example. It's very hard to find these with such a clearly defined hoplite/bireme.
