I'm looking to start collecting ancient Roman coins, I'm in my 20's and I don't think anyone would expect me to be doing something like this but I find that part of history to be really interesting even though I know little about, and the fact I can actually get some coins from that time is crazy to think about. First introduction was probably Rome Total War back then! I've read an introduction to ancient coins that someone posted here and also had a look through some posts here. I've bookmarked some auction houses just to see what kind of coins are around and eBay also(cautiously?). What's the deal with buying lots? Have they really been unchecked, or have some been plucked out? Right now, I'm hoping to get my first coin under €70 and to be honest I'm just searching for one that I like the look of. If anyone has useful tips or websites where I can get started I would really appreciate it, thanks!
