@hoxie, sorry about that. You can either look at the old link as @keith just mentioned, or else I think that I have fixed it now. The keyword to search on is "IBERIAN".

Had to copy and paste that one. Not like a 1950 dime or anything easy like that. We may tease you Spence, but good round. Lots of learning.

@loonielewy--nice detective work!

Here is my As from Obulco--not an exact match to numista, but still pretty close. Thanks to all for a great round! I know that these are a little tough on you US coin collectors, but hopefully you don't mind having your horizons expanded a little bit.

From numiswiki, forum ancient coins:

"Obulco, a Roman municipium of Hispania Baetica (Andalusia), now called Porcuna, a town of some note between Cordova and Gienna. Its coins which are autonomous, bear for their types generally a female head, sometimes a horseman, at others a bull, and the word OBVLCO, with the names of Roman duumvirs, and Celtiberian inscriptions."

That was a silver platter.

I haven't been gamemaster in a while. I'll try to get you guys, but, I doubt it. Work tomorrow, but lots of time after. I'll find something good, then leave you hangin'.

Ok. That was a fun round. I was sorta lost early in. I chose not not guess later in, because it would not be right if you guys asked all the questions, and I swooped in and stole the prize at the very end.

Game on! Was this coin made before 1900?

Isn't that @joecoin's primary strategy?
