  • Broke my Tiberius denarius

    Over fifteen years ago I bought a Tiberius denarius the "tribute penny." One day I dropped it on the hardwood kitchen floor and it chipped. I noticed inside it had some crystalization as can happen with ancient coins. I glued the chip back on. I paid $175 for it. I hope with coin values rising over time it will be worth at least as much as I paid. I've also had one mishap with a Roman glass flask, breaking it into two pieces. I glued it. Oh well, two incidents in nearly three decades of collecting isn't too bad I guess. I assume a few readers have had similar goofs!
