    Wow, great coins! So much history in such a small piece of metal. All exceptional, but the Alexander stater blows my mind.

    If you gentlemen would allow me to be 3rd in line, I would most wholeheartedly concur. Brilliant and superb pieces of history right there.

    Glad to see you guys have the same reaction I have to them...they are history from an amazing period in time. I get psychic vibrations from them.
