A while ago someone asked if I could post one of my ancient roman empire coins and I finally got around to doing it. They are all graded by NGC and pretty rare. The reason I bought them graded is so I knew I was not getting ripped off by fakes and because when it comes to ancient coins I am just a begginer. I have been collecting other type sets, bullion, silver eagles, morgans, walkers, dimes, Proof sets and even stuff from the Perth and U.S. mint for several years.....Also if you remember who you were let me know, it may have been Ironaddict?
That is really cool. Kind of trippy thinking about how long ago it was and picturing someone making them back then.
Thanks Big Puppy,
Yeah they actually used traveling mints, meaning they would haul the mint with horses and as the soldiers fought in battle they would mint the coins by striking them right on the spot to pay the soldiers...
