Completed some long overdue coin photography last week, and I added a bunch of new coins to my Roman Republican Gallery over the past few days.  Some scarcer types, and some not so scarce.  A few good provenances in the group, including one documented to before 1897.  Link to my Gallery is below.  Enjoy!

Honestly, that's one reason I gave up on Greek coins. I sometimes can't see the smallest ones even when I'm sure I'm holding them. Someday, my house will be known as the Cline hoard for all the lost Greek coins.

The dog story is hilarious. So is the recliner one.

Well, I've lost two. Both later recovered.  My dog ate one, which I retrieved after following her around and waiting the next day.  Second fell into my recliner and was missing for months.  Finally when my wife wasn't home I stripped the thing down as much as I could, turned it upside down and dropped it.  Coin dropped out from wherever it was.  I've also spent a fair amount of time on my hands and knees hunting under tables, radiators, desks etc.  Usually find those fairly quickly.

Wymysliłem coś takiego - moim zdaniem przechodził on "z rąk do rąk" hurtowników, jeden z nich "hurtowo" i "barbarzyńsko" sprawdzał "jak leci" posiadane monety pod kątem "czy to srebro?", "przejechał" więc pilnikiem i taki efekt powstał, a na końcu próbowano to jakoś "zatuszować".
Nie chce mi się wierzyć że jakikolwiek handlarz "stestował" pilnikiem monete. Obstawiam ze albo jakiś głupi eksperyment właściciela, albo zwykły wypadek.

No tak, teraz mamy dziwne czasy i sam nie wiem co dalej powinienem zrobić - dla bezpieczeństwa spieniężyć całą (lub część) kolekcji, a może a spokojnie korzystać z niskich cen i sukcesywnie dokupować to, czego nie mam.
Faktycznie - mam wrażenie ze kilku zbieraczy Probusa przestało walczyć na aukcjach i całkiem tanio można sobie kupić raz od czasu fajną blaszke (vide Perpetuo po Gysenie!).
