"The Coins and History of Asia" web site
« on: June 17, 2006, 04:01:00 pm »
One of the best web sites for Sasanian coins is The Coins and History of Asia maintained by Thomas K. Mallon-McCorgray.

Besides Sasanian coins it has many other coins from the different civilizations and cultures found in the Middle East and Asia.  It also has very good reference material.

Here is the link to the web site.

Sadly, Thomas Mallon has passed away and his superb website, winner of the FORVM Award for Numismatic Excellence, has gone offline.  Fortunately, much of his website is available on the waybackmachine archive.

The web site was down due to the grifterrec domain having expired. It has now been renewed, and is now fully available, at least to me.

Please try it, and report.

I met with Robert Schaaf and we discussed it. I have been spending the last few days editing the old HTML, cleaning up old coding and changing old (dead) links. It is a lot of work, but I hope to be done within the next couple of days.

The site will be hosted at coinproject.com, I will share the link once it is live and ready for testing. It is a HUGE site with over 100 static HTML pages. Each page has to be manually edited and tweaked. There are several older HTML tags which need to be changed but I will deal with those later.

The Forum award has been left intact on it's homepage. ;-)

Best,

Alfred

It is the least I could do. Tom contributed a lot of his time advising us on Coinproject. He is missed!
