- I am a 23 year old male living in St. George, UT. I am an Emergency Medical/911 Dispatcher for the City of St. George. I have been collecting ancients since I was 17. I use purchasing ancients in lieu of life savings or a 401K. I spend about %20 of what I make on ancients. I figure the "ancient desire" is always increasing amongst individuals; ergo, supply and demand shall take effect. Ever increasing my ancient coin collection value at a substantial rate similar to that of interest. I would really enjoy ancient numismatics as a profession. I just don't have the resources or a proper location to develop my life's passion into employment. There is one coin shop in St. George. On average, All Good Inc. carries an average of 6 ancients at a time. (constantine era) :( If you have any questions feel free to ask. I have about 110 silver/billon ancients and 300+ bronze. I would gladly post pictures at any request.
Ancient coins strike my interest in that, they supply physical and historical evidence that lays a secure foundation for my faith as a Christian. Without historical or physical evidence I believe finding myself as a Christian would be anything but present as a natural skeptic.
I also have a fairly sizeable United States Currency Collection. Ranging from current to about 1850. I started that collection when I was five. I have recently lost interest due to the lack of history and differences between United States Currency. (Most definitely arguable.)
Like I said previously, any questions - Feel free to ask.

Ps. For those of you interested in my last name "Higley" and coincidentally "Colonial American Coins,".... The answer is Yes. John and Samuel Higley are my direct descendants - The creators of the Higley coins or Grandby Coppers. And yes... I do have one "Value Me As You Please" It is in a safety deposit box and it is ugly.
