A nice idea!

I have bought so many times from Forum Ancient Coins because

(1) it has a very good price-quality-ratio
(2) the authenticity is guaranteed eternally
(3) and one of my nicest coins I have bought from Forum Ancient Coins

and
(4) I am thankful for the best numismatic Forum worldwide!

Forum is an incredible message board but an even better coin shop!  Some of my best pieces were purchased right here on Forum!

Thanks Joe!

I've never been disappointed with a coin from Forum, in fact they are usually much better than expected .   The reserve and layaway options are excellent; I can buy coins I could never afford otherwise.  My number one site for purchases.

FORVM is one of my favorite fixed-price sellers by far. Their pictures and descriptions are honest, their prices are fair retail, and important for me they always have a good selection of scarcer Republican bronzes and I've been able to add coins to my collection that I might never have owned an example of if it weren't for FORVM. Because of all this, I'm a lifelong customer.

Forum is the best ancient coin store, no question about it.  Here is one of my favorite Forum purchases.

I discovered FORVM about two years ago, and since then it has become my favorite website for learning about ancient coins and my favorite store for purchasing them. I can always trust that Forum Ancient Coins will accurately describe every item, which makes me proud to have their coins in my collection.

Thanks Joe!

I am less active than most of the folks here since my primary numismatic interests are elsewhere, at the moment.  There are a few items still on my want list and Forum is the only store I check everyday.  Always have been confident in my purchases.  Also, greatly appreciate the generous sponsoring of the discussion platform which has been invaluable.

all of the coins i have purchased from Joe in the past have been MUCH better than their photos, and none of the other dealers i have bought from can get my new treasures to me faster than Forvm. no kidding, i usually have my coins in hand within 2-3 days. so tell me, who can do better?

I've been a member here on the discussion board for over a dozen years and have purchased many coins from the shop during that time. As a matter of fact, some of my rarest Domitian denarii can be counted among those that can be attributed as 'Ex Forvm Ancient Coins'.

Thanks Joe for the many years of enjoyable discussions and top-notch coins!

Forvm has been a tremendously helpful resource, in the few years I've been collecting. The majority of ancients in my collection were purchased from this sites store.
Thanks to all who keep forvm going.

Since August 2004, This Forum was my window to numismatics knowledge. I used to Identify my coins here and have daily journey through Forum departments and coin shop. A lot of interesting and really inexpensive coins of interest to me in the shop have gone  without being able to get them. When you live in Syria it is impossible to receive or deal with ancient coins.

I can not benefit of Joe's  nice offer, but I write here to thank him for this Forumancientcoins.

I've never purchased from Forum.

I build houses for a living, and from 2009 - 2014 my financial situation was dismal. I've bought 1 coin since 2010 (from Nick, and with my eBay bucks it ended up costing five cents)

Add in two parents with Alzheimer's, and I'm still trying to catch up.

As soon as money frees up, I definitely will!

I'm only posting to let Joe know why I haven't purchased from Forum. Sometimes when I log in, I check to see if I've picked up the title Parasitica Cliens, but so far so good!

In the event that this is still running, allow me to introduce myself somewhat briefly.

I've only really started collecting a few months ago, although I've been interested in ancient numismatics for quite some time. Oddly enough, I settled on early Greek silver coinage, I've always been fascinated by the various animals and mythical creatures used as symbols of civic / regional identity. I say oddly because I am an archaeologist and teach various subjects in ancient history, specialising in Roman archaeology (esp. crafts and craftsmen in the early Roman empire). For some reason Roman coinage has never done it for me.

Anyways, I have nothing but good things to say about Forum. They, and the auctions hosted here, are one of the few dealers that I trust. Every purchase I've made has gone off without a problem, and I am very thankful for that.

Though, perhaps the greatest benefit of Forum is the phenomenal wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise collected here.

Thank you for allowing me to ramble.
All the best,
ABD

A very close friend of mine wanted to make this known.
He has consigned around 490 coins to Forum during the last six years. 461 of those were sold for the grand total of 132.000 USD, an average price of 286 USD. Some, I am told, were very cheap - like 27 USD - a few close to 10.000 USD. Clearly, many of these coins had to be quite nice to reach such an average. Well, my friend said that he has sold via the great auction houses as well, not to forget some independent great dealers. He especially wanted to name one, Barry Murphy. Well, Barry is not in the business anymore so I guess I can mention his name - being a great Forum asset as well.
What my friend wanted to point out was this. Forum has been the best place for him to sell - only equalled by a vanishing phenomenon, the knowledgable one-person coin show shop. There are a few of those still around. Joe is sort of an internet-king of a dealer of this type.
The point here is that we all really win by buying here but selling here is even better.

When assessing the coins available at Forum, one must always take into account time. Really interesting, really nice coins sell immediately. I do not know the extent of Joe's clientel, but if there is something you really want, grab it. Others will do it, if you do not.
Not that long ago I missed a day or two to check and found two Civil War "Augustus" type coins had appeared. Reasonably priced and one gone already. I grabbed the other one and I am really happy about that coin. Worn and with deep dark patina, but  very rare and historically fascinating indeed. During the 25 years I have seriously collected coins, this was the second one I could afford and not many others have been around (bull type). I have another one, from the Vecchi "Augustus" sale (great sale by the way) and its rarity is well demonstrated by the fact that it is one of the only three coins of this type Ponting and Butcher could analyze for its metal content.
99% silver bullion, Spanish mint trace metals. It is strange to thnk that the Rio Tinto mines one can visit today, once gave the silver to produce this little piece now in Finland. (Bowmore Islay 12 years single malt does have an effect, I notice)
So, follow this site as the great things go fast.

Almost my entire collection of ancients, medieval and miscellany is posted to my personal gallery on Forum Ancient Coins and these message boards have proven over the years to be an invaluable source of information, not to mention a great pastime.  My first uncleaned Roman coins were bought from Forum Ancient Coins, and over the years I have never been disappointed by any purchase made here.  Best wishes, Joe!  Steve (Stkp)
