    Hi y’all,

    So, I’ve been on this ancient kick. I got a nice lot of silver ancients coming in. Can you guys ID the exact type? And perhaps tell me of the value of each? I paid $1,155 for the lot of six coins. I was told the Corinth stater seems to have been smoothed previously.

    Thanks for your time,

    A nice lot. I'd say the price was about right, not a steal but you didn't get ripped off.

    Here's a good website for identifying the Roman coins:

    Online Coins of the Roman Empire (numismatics.org)

    A good way to start would be to type in as much of the legends as you can into the search and add details like emperor name, denomination, etc. Look carefully, because there are often quite subtle differences between types.

    For the non-Roman coins I'd advise using this site:

    acsearch.info - Auction research

    Do the same as for the Romans - type in as many details as you can into the search. If you purchase a subscription to acsearch.info you can also see the hammer prices, which will give you an idea of market value.

    Let us know what you come up with!

    Thanks for the resources. I often have trouble IDing properly. But I will certainly try these two sites out! I’m excited to have these in hand.
