I wonder how long before the premium Eid Mar coins out there get turned into NFT's? Just a matter of time I think.

Ancient Coin Forum / First Coin With a TV Set?
« Last post by Virgil H on Today at 06:51:38 pm »
I hope it is OK to post this as it is really just a frivolous funny thing that I have been laughing at for a few days now. I know we are supposed to be serious here. LOL. This coin is for sale in the Forum store and I may or may not end up buying it, but if you want it be warned I will probably pull the plug and buy it soon if no one else does first. I am attributing this coin as the first one depicting a television set, back in the day when we had rabbit ear antennas. It is actually a pretty cool coin.

GB97289. Bronze AE 15, SNG Cop 115; SNG Ashmolean 1431; BMC Troas p. 113, 95 (obverse described as altar); SNGvA -, VF, porous, off center, Kyme (near Nemrut Limani, Turkey) mint, weight 2.964g, maximum diameter 14.5mm, die axis 180o, c. 2nd - 1st Century B.C.; obverse inscribed tablet and two styli; reverse kantharos, K-Y across fields; ex Leu Numismatics, web auction 12 (30 - 31 May 2020), lot 2024 (part of); rare;

We are officially more than 9000 members here, including over 900 new members who joined in 2021. I’m curious to see how many will vote!

One thing I like about this system is that we all get three votes and do not have to pick just one. I had trouble with narrowing to three, but far better than only one. LOL.
