welcome to the boards Mr. Malloy!
i bought a few coins from you back in the late 80's, and still consult your old catalogs on occasion. but my greatest memory of you was when you beat me out of two lots at auction. my other grand collecting passion is Sherlock Holmes, and i had bid on two lots of coins from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's collection. they were nothing spectacular, but to me the provenance was everything!
ahhh well, that is the nature of auctions, is it not?
i look forward to benefitting from your expertise regarding antiquities here, and once again... welcome!
