Just received my new group of silver roman coins....! I'm sure that there'll be loads of duplicates and triplicates (and worse)...but it'll great practice trying to attribute them. I'm slowing working my way through some of the resources others have posted after the last batch I posted for ID. Some of them probably need some cleaning too.

That's definitely a nice group of silver coins there. I see a lot of 2nd-3rd century coins there. I imagine you could sell some of them as well. There is a place to sell here, of course.

I can't wait to see what you end up getting.

Looks like a nice hoard, you will have may hours of fun going through these. Do you mind saying where you got this hoard from?

How many in total?
And if I am allowed to ask: what was the average price per coin?

142 coins in total...they were from "crusty romans" in the UK - they got them from a german collector apparently who is retiring his collection. The final selling price was 19.79 (UK pounds) per piece, with the bulk order. They still have some on their website I believe (called 'Minos').
I've been buying from them because I trust them...they also come with export papers, so they should be legitimate.
I wouldn't mind selling the duplicates once I figure out what they are...although I have a feeling that it may take some time... This is a bit embarrassing to say, but I'm still having some trouble reading the darn letters, even when they should be relatively clear!

Yeah, just post what you can't figure out. I'm sure we'd enjoy trying to figure the coins out as well.

Will do! (although careful what you ask for...the last time I ended up flooding the board with 15 IDs at once!:))

No problem, just give me a discount for figuring out some. Just kidding. lol

It's no problem. Will keep me and others busy I think. I don't think the moderators mind either. More activity.

Just stick to half a dozen per day!

You should still consider that discount, whatever it is. :)

Just don't forget to post some every day, the sooner the better - so you can go on and buy the next lot.

I think I have a call tomorrow after work, and then a dinner, but after that I'll start posting.
Actually, I think that I may as well try to sell duplicates...they would fund new coins.
I've thought about trying one of these 'metal detecting holidays' at some point for fun. I found one site in Colchester which seems interesting:

Something about the idea of finding your own Celtic stater...though I'm sure that the odds are fairly low...

You are going to have fun with THAT lot!
What resources do you have access to, that will assist in the attribution of them?
