Talking of “unattainable” and unique coins, I have one more question: why do some unique or exceptionally rare coins fetch astronomical sums whilst others are apparent bargains? There is a unique Celtic coin of Eppillus being offered for sale in November and it is expected to fetch £3,000. This is undoubtedly a good price for a Celtic piece, but come on everyone, Unique is Unique, it is one of a kind. Other extreme rarities fetch ten, twenty, a hundred times that figure. I’ve never quite worked out why!
