Great coin, Clay! It's the best Macellum I've seen. Marsmike owned this way back when, and I nearly bought it from Ed W when Mike went Greek. Then Nomos FPL sold it at a very high price soon after that. You got an excellent deal today... congratulations!

Thanks, Jim. I appreciate the additional ownership history. I hadn't known Mike had had it in his collection, but that underlines for me the quality I thought I saw. I paid a bit less than MSG did to Nomos, I think, and I am grateful for that. Collecting dollars don't seem to go as far as they used to.
