wonderful irridescence and the detail on the reverse is exceptional.


Surprise me some day and buy a completely crappy coin........you know, maybe just a gVF example. ;-)

I bought the crappy coins at first when I didn't know there were any better. I prefer the better ones now. The iridescence of this coin with it's nicely struck reverse and artistic portrait attracted me. I do like some GVF coins, like Jim's Mendaion tetradrachm.
