Yowza. I'm just over here from the comic forums slumming, but if I collected coins I would definitely go for ancient ones like this. I know there is a lot of learning necessary, & some $$$, but someday I hope to dip my toe in.


Imagine the historical personages who might have held this very item... utterly fascinating.
