Thanks for the compliment, *Alex ...

Sadly, I haven't spent the time/energy to create an actual "gallery" ... all I have to offer is this one cool and now very long thread

=> I hope that you're enjoying the journey (I appreciate being able to show you guys my coins as they're leaving the nest and being adopted by all of you awesome ancient-coin collectors)

Cheers, coin-gang

Hi Steve,
Another winner for sure. The wreath in Dionysos hair looks like it came straight from the garden!

Hello Steve,
 Glad to see you have a cool coin thread over here at forum!  That awesome coin from Lorraine is inbound to my house now, I can't wait to get it.  I always loved that coin, and will fill the  "coin form medieval France' space in my collection.  Here are some pics of some other coins of your hanging out on ol' gnarly!

Hey, how is it hangin' chrsmat? ... long time, no hear!

Yah, I sure miss the ol' coin-gang (I still talk fairly regularly with TIF ... and occasionally with Z-Bro and Mentor)

Wow, so you're the Rock-Star who bought my sweet Lorraine, eh? (yah, that coin is a total stunner ... congrats, brother)

Oh, and those other two cool coins sure look at home on your gnarly table (I'm sure that you'll take good care of them)

 Thumbs Up

I hope everything is going well in your world

Cheers ("Here's to Rush!")
