It is nice to meet with people who share our passion. It's nice to "converse" with people on-line but that doesn't compare to sharing your interests, collection
, etc in person. I also enjoy sharing my new "prizes" and seeing those of others in my club.
You should consider starting an ancient coin club in your area if there isn't one already. Check the back few pages of the Celator
... you'll find many clubs that list contact and meeting information.
