    I was contemplating hitting the Buckhead GW today - good to know that you already cleaned it out so I won't bother. Haven't been to the "good" Marshalls or TJX in ages. Would like to see a pic of that Chesterfield!

    Likewise, I was planning originally to stay the night and hit the rest of the city this morning, but now Im glad I headed home. There were a couple of nice things at Marshalls, but nothing like when the last wave of BBBF/Rag and Bone stuff hit down there. Took me an hour or so to dig the coat up.

    Fyi, that Kit on was one of the 5% vicuna blends. Had a Bergdorf tag and now in the 50% off area of NMLC for about $1600. If I had about 5 grand I could seriously move my wardrobe forward at that store. However, I am happy with my Church's for under 10 bucks. And one other pop for me. N/A.

    Even when those two Marshalls stores get good stuff, at those prices, I'm mostly buying for personal use. Of course, there are the phantom "mistag" cases, but I don't think that's happened (at least to someone on here) for quite a while.

    That's key info. With 5% I probably would have passed too, but @the2ndhandman if you're patient you can do better than what you're describing. If you need inventory to turn over constantly, well, that's another thing.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! Specifically, it appears to be a copy of https://www.vcoins.com/en/stores/he...n_judaea_capta_sestertius/476409/Default.aspx. Wish it was an original!

    Later two I haven't had any luck identifying yet, may have to bring them in to a local coin gallery/expert to ID.

    Want to thank @Cj52racers and @colorvision for awesome trades on that Marinella for Beretta tie, and the Borrelli suit!

    I think my 1500$ BBBF Cashmere funigan that I picked up last time I was down there for ~50 would count in that category, however that has been about a year ago I think? But I was definitely hoping for that coat for myself more than profit. BBGF Tuxes for 300 there as well though, which was tempting.

    Likewise, was in the parking lot last night before close but wasn't feeling it. Piedmont wasn't horrible with ties, for the first time ever.

    Just as a reference, I did see a kiton suit made of 97% vicuna and 3% silk in a LCNM for around $3500. The retail price was $32,000. This was about 2 years ago and I still wish I had been able to buy it... was too much for me at the time...

    can confirm the second coins look greek. skeptical if real. but they look either repop, or polished. and damaged. super cool if real. a metal test should let you know.
