    Old coin

    A local coin dealer has an old Roman coin dated 215 BC. It looks authentic. What might it be worth?

    dime a dozen.. seriosly Pasha they arent very expensive ..maybe up to $100 last I recall for most generic versions ..seems like you could get them for $10 or something .. as a kid I had a little collection

    Certainly there are very expensive ones but most you run across are not those..much like domains


    ..actually I remeber now ..when I was in like 7th ,8th grade I had one and brought it to school showing if off to some "buddies" and I also brought along a coin book I had that showed what looked like the exact same coin ..and it had some astronomic price on it//a few hunbdred thousand ..

    WEl the other boys were whooping and hoolering in the hallway and a teacher walked up to see what we were doing..

    He grabbed the book, the coin and then proceeded to escort me to the principles office where they locked the coin in the little safe in his office and started drilling me ..

    I tried to explain the coin was missing a mark and because it didnt have the mark it was basically worthless..

    WEll they werent convinced this little kid new what he was saying..called the police and a local coin dealer ..

    Police because thye figured I probably stole it and the coin dealer to verify thieir suspcians..

    of course the coin dealer said is was.."basically worthless" and you know what .. I dont recall what happend after that ..

    so either it was a traumatizing whooping by Dad that erased my memory or nothing much else was ever made of it ..

    When was America a part of the Roman Empire?

    How could a coin be dated "BC"...
    Always remember that your domain is unique. Just like everybody else.

    Reminds me of the rooster who laid an egg on a roof and trying to figure out if the egg would roll down the north slope or the south...

    Is it true the word 'Gullible' is NOT in the dictionary?
