I am looking at a couple of coins from Roman Coin Bank out of England. Are they considered legit? https://www.romancoinbank.com/

Hello edteach. Welcome to CCF.
I looked at a few of your coins. It would be a lot easier, for people to see your coins, if you would paste the photos directly into your post, rather than putting links in your post.
I've never heard of the "Roman Coin Bank" store.
Here's a very popular ancient coin store : https://www.vcoins.com
They also sell medieval coins.

to the CCF.

I loaded only a few images; they take long time to bring the images to screen.
I agree with the_sand, and post one coin per post

Remove all coins from bezels.
Sell those or trade to buy more coins without bezels.

I also suggest Vcoins site for price comparisons; I usually list similar coins from lowest to highest prices, when viewing this site.

The RomanCoinBank shop seems legit enough. Personally, I'd recommend buying from in-country stores, rather than importing; any savings you might get from the cheaper pound these days could get eaten up by shipping costs, plus you never know if something will get held up in customs at either end.

There are plenty of US-based ancients dealers that could be recommended. FORVM ancient coins and Civitas Galleries are two that I've bought from, and I'm not even in America.

I'd recommend newbie ancients buyers staying away from eBay. Vcoins is kind of like "eBay for ancient coins", except the sellers are all vetted and fake-sellers are kicked off quickly, so it's "safer".

Thanks for the posts. I tried to post using the site here but when I pressed the image icon nothing would come up. I have pop up blocker so maybe that was it. I can log in on another browser and see if I can do it that way. Thanks again.

You have some nice coins, edteach. My favorites, in order of most favorite first, are as follows.
1. The Caracalla denarius.
2. The Domitian denarius.

Thanks. Roman coins are not my main thing to collect but I have been buying one here and there for about 20 years now. History is something that I am really interested in. It has so much to teach.

You have a basic start to an educational collection of Roman coins.
Beware ...... If you keep going, the ancients 'bug' will bite you.
