Wouldn't it be easier to just have Mike send you his coins, and then you send Ed the ones you didn't want?


This coin, the Nero, what else?

I must have passed on at least 50 of this type before I bought this one. It is incredibly sharp.

Do you have any idea what the significance of the stars and crescent moon is beyond the obvious . . . anyone?

Thanks for the reference. His was an interesting discussion. I had wondered about the Pleiades, though you couldn't see them through the eclipsed moon of course. -h

Fascinating link, Mark. Thanks so much. Wouldn't you love to be the one to find something like that someday? Best wishes, c.

Yes, Clay, it would be exciting. In my neck of the woods, the best I could hope for is an old penny.


I still think I should move to Bulgaria with a back hoe.

Nice article about the disk, Mark. I particularly liked the following line:


"If you urinate on a piece of bronze and then hide it in the ground for a few weeks you can produce the same patina as on the disk."


Might try this sometime with a few of my overcleaned lesser coins. :)

Wait a minute Jeff, now I am starting to really wonder about that authentic, 9th century BC bronze door knob you sold me.


I am thinking that maybe the engraved words "Master Lock" are not the name of the ruling satrap as you claimed.


I'm not feeling good about the $5k I paid you.
