I have a few oddities floating around.



By the way Mr. Wine, the two shiny faux Egyptians are yours should you want them.

VERY RARE Indo Greek coin, please! This is black-hole ignorance taken to a whole new level. No wonder the emperor is rolling his eyes. ::) How will this seller call a Portuguese eurocent? A British Indian real red gold mohur? You might have mentioned also that he is a top-rated seller with 100% positive feedback. :D :D :D

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Just came across this "feedback" on steel-tipped carbon arrows at Amazon. Couldn't help sharing.  :-X

I trust it was you who found the review helpful. Having not much to laugh about, I found it helpful also.

This very fine medal went for $90 in an Australian auction held by Downies,  Auction 315, Lot 2872.  Boulton's Trafalgar Medal 1805 47mm in white metal (BHM 584, Eimer 960) Fine/VF  estimated at $100.

Shame about the WRL below the bust, someone must have been wearing the wrong glasses 8)

I guess the glasses were pink :o That's almost beyond belief. The Westair stuff is easy to spot even without the initials. A bit too crude, way too light, wrong colour. I can imagine how it could fool a newbie, but an auction house? ::)
