Any luck in Stack's tonight?

I was looking for an 1810 8 reales and won this one!


The others I bid on (Carlos and Iohanna) went for much higher than my bids 😢

    Apparently they thought it looked powerful and flattering. Just looks like steroid abuse to me.

    I added 2 coins to my 8 reales collection .

    Can you guess which ones ?

    I manage money. I earn money. I save money .
    I give away money. I collect money.
    I don’t love money . I do love the Lord God.

    Gene, that is an outstanding Upper Canada token piece. Sweet.

    I debated bidding up the 1787-Mo 8R a little higher for fun but then worried I might own it at over $10,000.

    That’s a fine looking 8R!

    Finally got an ancient Roman gold aureus out of this auction — I have been looking for a while. Not in the highest grade, but it has even honest wear an a good “look”. Can’t go terribly wrong with Nero either.


    Great pickup Bailathaci - nice wholesome coin. Once you have one aureus you'll want more.
