    Hey ND - you mentioned an interest in ancients. You can start here -

    The gentleman who built that site knows more about them than anyone I personally know. He is also a WINS member - so it will be quite easy for you to contact him and talk about them ;)

    All kinds of information, supplies, websites, coin values, etc, can be found within Not only that, if you have a coin website, be it informative, buying/selling of coinage or supplies, you can get some free advertisement by listing your site in one of the webrings, or many of them. All you have to do is post a banner for the webring on the site page you wish to link to. Fair enough. I recently took on a webmaster position of this one: Look around through all of them. You can spend hours in there.
