I am taking time to look at, check out my attributions, update the photography, weigh and measure. Then the coins will be put in smaller piles whilst I figure out how I dispose of the ones I will part with. The first coin is the one that got me into ancients in the first place and one that I have shared here before. This one has a sentimental place in my collection and I will never part with it. I thought it worth sharing my up to date images though. I hope that you don't mind me sharing some of my finds on my trip down memory lane as I work through these boxes....
