Default Another Coin Question

I ran across a coin marked 300 BC. It was a little worn but in pretty good shape. I'll try to post a pic when I get one. Anybody know where to check prices on similar coins.?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. A long time ago I bought a coin similar to what you describe for $50. I see the coin for sale for $50 and thinking the people selling were completely clueless. Oh I had the dollar signs in my eyes, trying to keep my composure while I was buying it... the whole time thinking "suckers".

A week later I get the coin to a reputable coin shop. Guess what they have a whole pipe of under the counter for $40 each.

Visit the trading pit in Mesopotamia. Prices are on stone tablets so the market doesn't move quickly (sorta like you )

They give them away, as a token of appreciation, when you sign up for an annuity.....

Did you get it from those guys on TV that sell the $50 gold piece containing .0000001 oz of real gold?

Agree if the BC means bitcoin you can just make up a price; that's what they do.

Does anybody besides Zardoz understand the difference between BC and AD? It was a joke guys. Just a try at a little humor on a slow afternoon.

Shag, You better stick with your day job.

Seems you failed as a comedian.

I just thought maybe you are really that dumb. I was also hoping you'd actually post a picture.
