Even though I know the "why", it's a pity seeing all those killer coins flowing away, isn't it ?

Thanks Q's

Yes Potator, it is a bit sad to be selling-off my sweet coins ... but it is also quite a nice feeling clawing-back some of the coin-cash for other future uses (retirement home, etc)

I hope things are going well with you

Cheers

Some info about this semis since I'm the one who purchased it: This coin is actually not an official Rome mint semis but instead, an imitation, likely struck in Italy during the first century B.C. to address a small change shortage. The Rome mint cut back on its bronze output considerably during the latter half of the second century B.C. so while large numbers of denarii were being minted, the bronzes that citizens used for day-to-day transactions were in short supply outside of the city of Rome itself so, in similar fashion to the Civil War Tokens that many U.S. collectors are familiar with, private individuals or perhaps even city governments began striking imitations on a similar weight standard and with similar designs as Roman bronzes, in many cases re-using old mintmarks such as the dolphin on this coin. The Roman government was probably perfectly fine for this and may have even encouraged it as the Rome mint could focus on striking precious metal denominations which were far more useful for the Roman government itself.

As an interesting note: this example is an obverse die match to the British Museum example which, when BMC RR was originally published was actually thought to be an official Rome mint product(though they were obviously somewhat unsure of its status as it wasn't included in the main arrangement but instead, the appendix at the end of Vol. 2). They've changed their minds since then and the coin is now listed on their website and in more recent updates of BMC RR as an imitation, but it's an interesting footnote in the history of this particular imitation.

I sold this Croc-coin yesterday ... I love this coin-type (unfortunately, my example has a sweet obverse, but the reverse is just a wee bit off-center causing the croc's teeth to be off flan ... but I still think that it's a cool example)
