found out that a coin I possess is ~1000 years old

Have been at the Dorotheum today and found out that an old coin I possess is really old, about 1000 years. Unfortunately this byzantine coin isn't worth much, for an auction it would start at 6€ - I belive you got much more for that coin 1000yrs ago ;)
