Nice continuous stream of fresh specimen you keep producing ! I am slowing starting to believe that you buy those mixed hoards by the kilo lately !

A whole kilo  8) I wish I could but those days are gone as too many people know how popular Indian/Islamic coins are. This was in a lot of 91 coins, I had been buying coins from this seller on and off and asked how many more Islamic/Indian types he had to list and would he be interested in a private sale. Needless to say we struck a deal!
 I think the biggest prize out of the lot was the superb full flan Awadh Falus of Brijis Qadr, struck during the mutiny. If that had remained on Ebay for a week it would have probably attracted 4 times the price I paid for the entire lot  :o

E-bay has not produced anything relevant for me lately. I get private offers, but i don't know anymore what to do with the 95 % of lot contents which is always the same plain common stuff. But keeping my eyes open untill now has offered some great bargains, so i just have to be patient.
(And in the meanwhile i am tidying some categories on Zeno)
