Hi all,

for a while now I have maintained a small website that I use to catalog my collection, largely to document it for myself and make it easy to find a picture of a given coin if I want to share it with someone. Recently I moved the site to its own domain and started a small blog to go with the image gallery where I try to discuss things of interest to collectors. I've also recently attempted to upload scans and add links to provenance information when possible and added historical notes and other bits of interesting information, such as die matches or notes about the physical characteristics of a particular coin. As you can likely tell by the title, the focus is on the coinage of the Roman Republic, mainly the principal series identified by Crawford, but related coinage such as provincial coinage as well. My collection, while small, features both bronze and silver and includes many scarce or outright rare coins, such as a very rare Cr. 41/6e post-semilibral struck semis, two scarcer second century sextantes, a Cr. 191/3 "VAL" triens and soon a Cr. 121/4 Sow series semis, and many of the coins have excellent provenances to the McCabe, RBW and Goodman collections to boot.

With that in mind, the gallery can be found at http://gallery.respublicacoins.com and the blog at http://respublicacoins.com

I realize the site is quite small for now, but my goal with it is to document my entire collection as I build it both for my own use and the use of other collectors who are researching their own coins or just wanting to learn more about this fascinating area of numismatics. Every coin, whether it be an EF denarius or a "rare slug" that only the most devout Republican bronze collector can admire, will be photographed, documented and cataloged with historical notes and commentary where appropriate, so to that end, if you have any comments, concerns or questions on the current contents or the format, please let me know and I will take your considerations into account.

Thanks,
Jordan Montgomery

it looks nice so far.
however to promote your sites here you must include an active link to Forvm.

good luck!

Thanks, Peter. As far as a link, I've actually already got one. On the sidebar (or down near the bottom if you're on mobile) of the blog there is a "related sites" list with a link to FORVM.
