A New Hobby ???
A guy named Doug turned me on to uncleaned ancient Roman coins during a discussion on the Treasure Time Forum. For some reason I had always assumed that coins from 1500-2000 years old were probably all in museums, auction houses and high dollar collections. Doug showed me that this is not so. He is just one of the great people you will meet if you decide to visit the TT forum. I think you will like it.
Anyway, I am ordering my first few unidentifiable coins today. The trick is to get them clean enough to be able to unravel the puzzle of its origin and age.
I'll post some "before" photos when they arrive.
