    I'm very new to ancient coins, not even two months yet and have just started researching what I need to know (or at least think I need to know). As far as buying the coins goes, who would you consider trustworthy dealers on Ebay and elsewhere (links would be welcome if they are allowed here). Thank you for any help anyone can give me here.

    Help received would be more effective if you told us roughly where you are. The answers would be different if you said Eastern US than if you said France. We don't need an address. This group has some dealer members and might help you find local coin shows.

    I'm in Northern Virginia but I'm looking as much online - in fact, more so due to the fact that I travel a LOT for work - as I am for local shows etc. Thank you for responding so quickly.

    Here is my list - I am sure this will turn into an absolute pile on thread (especially listing eBay sellers)!!....:happy:

    Holding History

    Enjoy.. I don't know many but I try to help new members..

    Also Frank Robinson has a new auction up - closing February 11th:
    Main site:
    Current Auction:

    He has a few auctions per year.. just takes bids by email.
    I have never been disappointed and highly recommend his auctions.

    Would love to see more suggestions posted....

    I second your choice of Victor clark and I also highly recommend Holding History on Bay, he is a member of this board.

    I will when I get a chance. I am about to give a lecture to 300 so I am a little pre-occupied at the moment. I should have a chance after the lecture.

    I also agree that Rudnik's website will make you want to pull your hair out...
    But I have purchased from him and he was very easy to deal with.

    Marc Breitsprecher is on my mind since I just bought a fabulous coin from him. Paid for it Sunday night, received it in the mail today. Impressive! He's an experienced and trustworthy dealer located in Ft. Worth, TX.

  18. I have nothing to add, yet, as I would have to look at my coins again. However, ALL of the ones listed above I had done business with and have always been pleased.

  19. YES! Marc is one of my favorite dealers. I have bought many coins from him. He has an excellent selection, great prices, and professional service.
    I have to add Incitatus Coins as one of my favorites dealers as well.
