His budget was 20K for initial first coins. It will be fun to help him out.

20,000? Geez, you got yourself a wealthy client!
That is the great part of the hobby, IMHO. There are coins that are suitable for teens who cut their neighbors' lawn and others for dentists who pay p-man in gold. I wish I had the sense not even to look at high dollar coins or to admit defeat and send my $45 questionables to an expert who would charge $50 to tell me I was a fool. I hope we get to see what the dentist buys.
John, I assume one factor that guided this client to choose you as a "coin adviser" for acquiring ancient coins was the quality of your lawn work, & that's not a bad criterion if you do superior work. Do you believe this client has a genuine interest in ancient coins & ancient history or are they just looking for a place to stash their cash ?
I truly beleive that he has caught the coin "bug", once infected you are toast....in a good way. Like me, he is German, and appreciates quality, loves history, enjoys life. He just had one pastime before...golf. I have never golfed/ but I love snowmobiling/ hunting/ hiking/ militaria. Like me, I know he will be into the hobby for the enjoyment, rather then to make a fast buck. I remember, I lost a FDC Faustina Sr. Aurei to someone, that coin went up for auction a couple months later, which meant the bidder was not a collector but a speculator....ruined my day. Sadly, their are many who like that.
Maybe the dentist just needs a friend to talk to !
