Not as pretty as the one used by Doug, but both with their own charm!

You might want to clean that penny, Steve. It seems to have formed a couple deposits.

Oh, wait.

Never mind.

Seriously, good stuff, and a great schnoz on the left one. Make sure you don't drop these on the shag carpet.

Thanks all!

I am actually not sure how exactly these are found again after 2500 years of being lost, but I would love to know.

Believe it or not, these are not the smallest Greek coins, as there was a hemitetartemorion...

Just make sure you don't inhale too deeply when handling these.
