Well baronials are definetly rare
, but there are other factors affecting price
and desirability. If you compare a Tigranes Tet to a baronial, a Tet is less rare
but more appealing, and attains higher prices. While, I agree, that Roupen was no brainer, I did not want to spent all of my budget
This is probably opinion based if a person wants a baronial: appeal, rarity
They are quite rare
, and all are unique, but I get scared from buying
something that is not attractive, and costs much. I have just obtained the Prices Realized from CNG
36, and all baronials there realized under 500$. I was actually surprised at how little they realized. As I was reviewing baronials, and sold pr's I would like to share some opinions:
Roupen I AE = These are the second most numerous types
of baronial. They are the least attractive type
. As an additional note these are the second coins to bear the Armenian
language, and first Cilician Armenian
coins. Prices greatly vary from $200-800.
Toros I, Toros II = These are rarer varieties, and unique designs. However, they are poor
in design and preservation. Prices are probably under $500 even today.
Roupen II = These are they rarest of all baronial types
, and have a very interesting, appealing, and unique design. Prices in my opinion would be in the $500 range.
Levon II = The most numerous type
of all the baronials. They are fairly attractive and interesting. Perhaps this and Roupen II are the two most attractive of the baronial types
. Prices are in the 150-200 dollar range for these. An individual mentioned to me he purchased one for $160 - I think it is quite a bargain
What are your thoughts guys?
you get your Roupen soon
