I'm sorry for making you wait almost 3 months for a new upload. But you see it's been hard to find coin examples in the grade and price at which I like to sell them. Particularly Roman coins.
Now I have some nice examples for you to look at, and well. It is the start of the week, and as far as I am concerned there's no better time than a Monday to upload Ancient Coins to our website. I get to tick off something on my to-do list early in the week, and you will have some nice Roman Silver coins to look at, to get you through the week. It sounds like a great proposition to me. And let's be honest, there's not much Roman Silver on our website right now... Well, that's all going to change starting from now, have a look below...
