Buy a goof...










Another coin casting fail on my sixth try.  Everything went perfectly until I flinched during the pour (the moment of truth).  If anyone is interested, this goof is for sale as is - sprue and all.  36 grams of 999 fine silver fail.  Make me an offer in the comments.  The good news is my delft clay and smaller mold forms arrived today so I will give it another shot tomorrow.  91,97,72,0,B

maybe that is the per ton spot price…

who would have guessed Herakles would be roaming around via USPS/UPS in 2018… from south Texas no less?
"In the latest standard, which was also the one used for the temple tax, the coins bore the likeness of the Phoenician god Melqart or Baal, accepted as the Olympian Herakles by the Greeks and derided as Beelzebub by Jews in the time of the Seleucids, wearing the laurel reflecting his role in the Tyrian games and the ancient Olympic Games."
the wiki take

" the Tyrian tetradrachmas (coins weighing approximately half an ounce) remained the standard for this payment long after the Romans took over the land because the Roman coins, now imported from the Far East, contained only 80% silver and were, therefore, of poorer quality than their Tyrian counterparts (95% purity)." yours @ 999
