RE: CNN Producer called me for this story

Hi,

The day before the story was covered on CNN & other world news agencies, a CNN reporter called me up to get some help on the coins and the archaeology of the excavation to get some background for his story. I missed the TV broadcast of the story.

I have the close-up high-resolution photos of this gold coin hoard for those who are interested to see the coins. They are very, very fine coins in near-perfect or perfect condition.

How exciting it must have been to find this hoard of no-less-than-GOLD(!) coins.

kindest regards,

B. Leon

Hi Beast

Maybe its a good time to ask Salem about the composition of the Byzantine gold coins he has/had for sale and some group photos. If he has a lot of coins left it may well be worth a visit to him for some scholarly research before the rest of the hoard disappears into collections worldwide

Regards
Cameron Day
