In the last week I have put up a dozen ancients for identification. You have come through every time, despite the appalling wear on some of them.

Have I said that I am impressed?

I was concerned about trying the patience of the forum members, but there was no hint that I was a bother.

I personally love the challenge of trying to ID previously unattributed coins.

I think that it helps me with attributing my own coins.

I think the skill and expertise of the Ancient Regulars on the forum is nothing short of amazing.

I am learning too. They came from a larger batch, of which I was able to identify quite a few, including a worn Kushan empire piece, which I have seen before. It is somewhat obvious, but the more you see the better you get.

Anyway, I have temporarily run out of unattributed coins so you guys can have an identification vacation.

I was too, due to the fact that on other forums I felt marginalized or even ignored.

Frankly before I found this place, I was contemplating on whether I should continue this hobby. Well, I'm still in it and part of this family.

Although I haven't posted in awhile

I'm always singing the praises of this forum elsewhere. For example, in the answers to coin questions at Quora.
