if your concerned with any you purchased please show some pics on this forum
Hi, I'll do that. I convinced the auction house that overall they are not worth much more than $10 each so I think the price I paid was reasonable given the size of the collection. I know there are quite a number of restrikes but there are quite a few potential originals (based only on the age patina). I'll be photographing the lot over the weekend and ones I think are originals I will post for an opinion. I appreciate your knowledge about these.
