Back in February I bought a tray of coins that was dumped from a bag for about $35 at an estate sale. The following Greek beauties were in there. Depending on how they grade, the lot could be worth 50-100 times that. Dumb luck, right place - right time, etc. SCORE!

Yep! Not a massive IHC Collector but I do like the MPD variaties.


EditL I saw one unattributed in a PCGS MS63RB slab but someone else saw it and pulled it out from under me.

Nowhere near as dramatic as that DDO find, or @jadey's incredible Greece score ...
On recent visit to LCS, I pulled a few 1960s Africa coins from the 5-for-a-buck world coin bin. This one just sold for $6.99 ... 2,900% profit net of fees
