My first Ancient. Really like the strike. The test cut in my opinion adds character and kind of neat someone before the time of Jesus did it to test if it was real. Can anyone tell me about the hoard I hear talked about of 30,000 of these found in Turkey a few years ago?

    Me too, never really knew how thick and high relief they were until I held one.

    Great to see you posting on the Darkside darktone... I will leave the ancients to the ancient experts. However there are coins that have an amazing look for that time. Congrats

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    Thanks, took a break from coins and this forum. But still go to shows. Good to be back.
