I looked, but you bid...and won. Congrats. The portraits are stunning. The reverse is another great attraction.

yes, the provenance. I forgot to mention that. I knew this coin would soar in price and stayed away. It is really special

Thanks guys. Yes, I am very happy to get this one. I always found this type especially interesting with the double portraits and the still-present statue of Artermis on the reverse. The provenance was the icing on the cake.
