Skotussa. Lot of 3 coins.

Triton XV, Lot: 746. Estimate $150.
Sold for $700. This amount does not include the buyer’s fee.

For some reason, probably having to do with the metal alloy, coins such as the this lot, are almost never found without corrosion or surface problems; these are the best this collector could obtain in a lifetime of searching.

Lot of 3 coins.
