Happy Birthday FORVM!

It's because of you and your Discussion Board (among other wonderful resources) I am the collector and enthusiast I am.

Thank you!  As you said somewhere else, collectors of ancient coins can be lonely.  No one to share with, no one to talk to, etc.
No longer!  Not a day goes by that I don't check in.  Pat L.

    • What I Like About Ancient Coins
Re: FORVM 10 YEARS OLD!

Looking at an ancient coin, I think "What story is this coin telling?"  And in fact it is telling many different stories, about its manufacture, the reasons why it was made, the society it came from, the mythology it draws from, how it has been treated since it was minted, and many more.   I would know a lot less about all of these if it weren't for Forum, its members, and their generosity with their time and their various areas of expertise.

I'm going to repeat what I said in another similar thread (the 6th anniversary of FORVM's forum) a short time ago, without FORVM I probably would not have become a collector but would have quit the hobby.
I don't know anyone else in real life who collects ancients but this is a good enough substitute.

And there are always enough nice coins in the catalog for about one order a month.

Nice one mate. Please keep it up! We'd all be poorer, in one sense, and richer in another, without FORVM.

10 years already? Although I didn't join until February or March of 1998, there were only 30 or so members. I can remember w\when Forum finally made the magic number of 100 members.

congratulations Joe, and may Forum continue for many more!
