I got a call earlier from someone looking for offers on some Ancient coins.
Anyone have an idea of value on these coins? I checked HA and my best guess was over $1000 on the gold solidus.
It depends on whether you are selling them through Heritage to people who are too afraid to buy anywhere else https://www.coinarchives.com/a/results.php?search=Phocas+solidus&s=0&upcoming=0&results=100
The Domitian is not worth much in that condition (note it’s an as, not a sestertius) https://www.coinarchives.com/a/results.php?search=Domitian+ae+saec&s=0&upcoming=0&results=100
I referred him to Stacks/Bowers and Ponterio.
