Greetings all, I am a new coin collector, and have recently joined the forum. I have been reading a lot. Literally i have spent 15 hrs since yesterday on this forum, and so far I am loving it. To boot my hobby, i wanted to start with something sacred... Even the wife wont mind if i spend time and money in this new hobby.. hence i wanted to get the first Widow's Mite, and then later few more biblical coins before I get into other ancient coins. All the Widow's Mite I am seeing on vcoins or for that matter on ebay, are disasterously disfigured or fossilized. I have been reading on the forum, many folks do have the coins in reasonably good appearance. Why is it so hard to find them right now? Or am i looking at the wrong place. The ony two sellers on vcoin have them in a little better shape are Athena and Zuriqeh.. who i read have a very bad reputation and I will keep them at a distance.
