I am ashamed to say that this was the first time that I have viewed your gallery Callimachus. But I am very impressed with your collection of beautifully preserved coins and it has been a real pleasure to view it.

Thank you quadrans and Alex for your comments.

I think the members' gallery here is the most under-utilized section of this website.
There are many galleries here that are full of beautiful coins.
I urge every member to regularly browse the members' galleries.

Very nice example of a scarce monarch

My example is inferior, I see you have seen it since you commented on the picture.

Quote from Nap: "My example is inferior . . ."

Still a very nice coin. I would have purchased it if I had had the chance.

You are so correct.  I followed a trail of crumbs to see the coin featured here in your gallery.  I'm agog.  I'm going to peruse your gallery some more. 
As for advocacy:  I like to search the galleries for like types when posting new coins, contemplating acquisitions, or as part of discussions.
