Cassius Longinus 42 BC NGC MS Julius Caesar Killer Brutus Spinther Roman

Hello Again!! Up for auction is probably the finest coin I've auctioned yet. This is an extremely rare issue from Cassius Longinus one of the chief conspirators in the murder of Julius Caesar along with his friend and ally Brutus. This issue was likely minted in Ancient Smyrna at the meeting place of both Cassius and Brutus. The two were minting coins in preparation for the upcoming war with Ocatavian (who would become Augustus) and Mark Antony. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST AND MOST HISTORICALLY SOUGHT AFTER ISSUES IN ANCIENT COINS. The LUSTER IS INCREDIBLE. The images are crystal clear on a perfect mint state background. The pictures don't do it justice. Whoever wins this coin will be EXTREMELY pleased. What you see is what you get from a seller with a 100% customer service rating on EBAY. Any questions please ask, and GOOD LUCK BIDDING!!! This will be an exciting one!!!
