Glad to have you, especially one knowledgeable about what is - to an American - pretty esoteric stuff.

I see you found the section for Ancient, Greek, Roman, and Medieval Coins.

Rest in Peace

Welcome! I am going to presume you don't have to worry about fakes?

well, I'm in theme about 20 years, so I can recognize the fake medieval Lithuanian coin immediately. And I have few friends, who collect fake coins, so they are always happy to get some new with my congrats :)

giedrius!

When I saw the dates you listed for coins of interest, I realized I know very little about Lithuania. So, I read about the country on Wikipedia. Here are four things about Lithuania I did not know (among others!):


Quote:
1) First mention of Lithuania [in a written document]: 9 March 1009

2) By the end of the 14th century, Lithuania was one of the largest countries in Europe and included present-day Belarus, Ukraine, and parts of Poland and Russia.

3) [After annexing Lithuania in 1944-45] The Soviets engaged in massive deportations of Lithuanians to Siberia, complete nationalisation and collectivisation and general sovietization of everyday life. From 1944 to 1952 approximately 100,000 Lithuanian partisans fought a guerrilla war against the Soviet system. An estimated 30,000 partisans and their supporters were killed, and many more were arrested and deported to Siberian gulags.

4) Lithuanian is a Baltic language, related to Latvian. It is written in a Latin alphabet. Lithuanian is often said to be the most conservative living Indo-European language, retaining many features of Proto-Indo-European now lost in other Indo-European languages.
