Irrational coin buying at it's finest...for a dupe no less.
Let's see. I'm trying to downsize...not that I'd ever have a mere box of 20--I'll settle for 20 different collections--but I'm trying to lose the extraneous stuff and dump the remnants of my 'collectible bullion' (anyone interested in Aussie Lunars??). I want to stay focused on Albania, upgrading my Japanese Type's overall quality (and reduce my date runs/dupes), and maybe/possibly inch a bit further into ancients.
So, what did I do this weekend??? Apparently I decided I needed this duplicate of one of my more enduring coin forum avatars. Seriously.
My current one/old avatar coin in an NGC MS-64:
and now I bought this one from @airplanenut that resides in an ANACS MS-65:
I guess that means if anyone has a blast white (just for variety...or another toned one, why not???) in a PCGS and/or ICG slab, well I'll be all over it.
Not only that I bought another Italian coin, which is very similar to one I sold another time I downsized. Geez. I find it hard to resist Jeremy's auctions.
