No, it was not listed. If I win the coin, I will update with the info.

another example that just sold.  19mm   3.6gm


It's funny that the first example in this post sold for $47.00 and this latest one sold for $215.01; but I did resell the first example in my Vcoins store for $225.

Nice example! Once again I was one of the underbidders... It seems that the seller managed to get a few of these Rome campgates recently as there were 3-4 on sale at the same time as well as another 2-3 similar ones currently.
