Does anyone on this group know something about this coin?
A denar minted by Brutus in Macedonia about 42 bc with Brutus on the obv
and two daggers and a liberty cap on the rev.
The rev memorate the liberation of Rome from Caius Julius Caesar.
What I am interested in is tha availability of this coin in a lower but
readable grade, something like G or VG. I have seen it in Seabys silver
coins of the first republic stating a value of 7000 Pounds in VF since
this is more than I spend on coins in a year I would be happy to find it
at a bit lower price.

Hope this post does not interfere with the ongoing flamings

Yes, such a coin is available at a lower price, but it's still at the
"Ouch" level!  I believe that the Classical Numismatic Group (CNG)
of Lancaster, PA had a G example recently.  However, it was priced at something like
$2000.  Nevertheless, it still sold quickly!  Good luck on your quest!
