    Good lord 😀
    Thanks for sharing. I’m rather speechless but have learned to appreciate a look at where I can hope to someday have a very nice collection and really like the variety but those ancients are really nice 👍🏼

    🎶 shout shout, let it all out 🎶

    Neat selection!
    Your green toned 1913 Buffalo is outstanding.

    Ex- @crazyhounddog, though it did not come directly to me from him.

    I affectionately refer to that one as “The Jolly Green Giant”, because why not. :)

    Very interesting and diverse collection of nice coins. That's for sharing them with us. B)

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    Thanks. I made a database note that you’re to have first dibs on that $3 piece should I ever decide to sell it (since you’d mentioned an interest previously). However, now that my financial situation has improved somewhat, I’ll likely be more of a longterm keeper than a seller, going forward.

    (Besides, I might be buried in that piece for the foreseeable future. I bid pretty strong for it.)

    That gold $3 is definitely a keeper. :)

    Very nice coins @lordmarcovan. That really is the way I collect now - and for many years. Not a series or varieties.... but what I like when I see it. You could say that my collection for the last decade or more has - and is - eclectic. Cheers, RickO

    Nice job Rob, really cool stuff. The 1818 50¢ is fantastic and your Gothic Florin is magnificent. A collection to be proud of.

    I’d be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. Right now the Roman gold aureus of Nero is the most monetarily valuable by a pretty good margin, though it’s not one of the most beautiful.

    Of course the most monetarily valuable and the most sentimentally appealing to me are usually entirely different coins.

    That little Spartan Taras owl is high on my sentimental favorites list. So is the Persian gold toman.

    Though I love Classic US coins, I’m a World coin guy first and foremost. (A confirmed “Darksider”). :)

    The Roman gold aureus of Nero is the one I would pick as my favorite. That's one expensive coin. B)

    Thanks, but I can claim no credit for that. I didn’t even notice it was there until fairly recently. That’s a nice little free feature that came with the CollecOnline site where I have my collections hosted. I gather it’s relatively new.

    https://www.colleconline.com/en/collections/gallery3d/17271/us-coins-tokens

    It didn’t require any work or input on my part. It was just there all of a sudden one day. Kind of the way the PCGS Registry creates those little virtual albums.

    CollecOnline is free to join and use. I liked it enough that I upgraded to the lowest paid tier (5€/month- it’s a French site). Whether the free basic accounts get the 3D virtual galleries too, I don’t know. I think maybe they do? Perhaps somebody can try it out and let us know.
