Interesting Greek Coins Found During Zap

I have been zapping for about seven years now and I think my zapping has turned into an addiction! If the wife and I are out of town for a couple days I can hardly keep my mind off my crusties. I continue to think about what may be hidden beneath the crusty surface of a particular group of coins.

My attributing skills have suffered greatly as a result of my orientation towards the image. This is particularly true with Greek coins. I am making and effort to learn more but I am still having to rely on the Coin Scholars at Ancient Peddler to help with most coins. Boy, these guys are great and they are also very kind. I don't think I have ever seen them refuse to help a member with an attribution problem.

Back to my zapping. Some days are much more productive than others and recently I pulled several Greek coins from a zapped batch and I was delighted to see the three coins posted above. Right now I have no idea what I have but I do love the images. I am still getting an aesthetic high from viewing the group. Let me know what you think and please let me know if I have found anything terribly rare! Thanks for allowing me to share my love with you.. God Bless.. Jerry..
