Mover Gets One, 2,000-Year-Old Coin as a Tip

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-07_9ab822fdcd.jpgiStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- Getting a one coin tip after hours of backbreaking manual labor in the middle of a heatwave might be an insult, but a professional mover who got just that on Tuesday isn't complaining -- because the coin dates from 31 B.C. The mover, who is located in Massachusetts, posted a picture to the Reddit screename BobbyFBrown, saying, "[W]e're packing archives of this former professor who was a flag expert. His son gave us these today as a way of saying thanks for being careful with his father's collection."

The coin came with a label reading: "Silver Denarius of Marc Antony -- 31 B.C. Used by Marc Antony to pay his eighth legion. Struck to pay the Legions used in the Battle of Actium."

While the mover was told the coin was worth at most $100, fellow Redditers say eBay searches prove it's worth at least three times that.
