I hope you recognize that that price for uncleaned late Roman bronzes
is very high. I trust you have seen the quality of the pieces before
At the Chicago International Coin Fair I was given the offer to grab a
handful of CLEANED coins like that at $1.50 per coin. I declined and
elected to pay $3.00 per coin to pick and choose only what I liked.
I have purchased uncleaned lots like this for $60/100, and the dealer
was making out okay at that. The Celator has more competitive offers
