Quote from: alglasser on October 10, 2012, 11:54:56 PMQuite by accident I stumbled on a rather nice set of 4 coins from Oman, minted in 2011, commemorating the National Opera. The set is available on e-Bay but I researched and found that they still might be available from the Oman National Bank. So I e-mailed a request. The price for the set is 89 RO (Ryals Oman?) which translated to around $130 U.S.., I think. The e-Bay set is $465. Anyone want to place a bet on my chances of getting the set from the Oman National Bank? I have had some success before, going direct to the source. When I set my sights on the Jamaica $100 Robert Marley gold coin (KM-172), I wrote the Bank in Jamaica and they DID have several that they were selling, for less than the gold content value! I scraped together my sheckels and bought one by international money transfer. I wish I had bought all of them now...oh well..][/color][/size]Alan Uploaded with ImageShack.us
