People are always letting me know how they love my coins.  I really appreciate the stories, as it makes the work worthwhile.  After you get your coins, feel free to write a testimonial, and maybe we will put it up on this page.Thanks

Hello! I received my coins yesterday and felt compelled to let you know how pleased I am with my purchase. I am new to coin collecting and decided to buy uncleaned coins from six dealers on e-bay to compare forquality and service. I admit to being let down when the first few parcels arrived. The coins were chipped and a few were broken. I was so pleased with the selection you sent out. Most of them have some detail visible and one of them has cleaned up beautifully! I was planning on purchasing more coins from the dealer who had the best selection and I am happy to say that yours were by far the best. I will place another order around the holidays for gifts to my nephews and nieces. I wanted to let you know how satisfied I am
with this purchase.
Sincerely, Penny

Wowsers! I received the coins and tried an experiment using a sonic jewelry cleaner. In just three hours, I had all of the gook powered away and all of the patina still intact with almost no scrubbing.  For what it’s worth, I bought the cleaner at JC Penney for $18.99. I know it’s a terrible thing to do, but I’m going to dip the coins in CLR tomorrow to strip away much of the patina. My daughter has show-and-tell Monday and wanted to take “shiny” coins.

Thanks for the coins. I got them today and they appear to be of a higher quality than many other suppliers I’ve dealt with.

We did a week long project between the science class, which was covering archaeology and the world history class which was studying ancient Rome. The kidsLOVED the coins. Being able to actually hold a piece of history was an incredible concept to them. The supplies were easy to get and the project was not too messy. All we needed was a small plastic container (like a film canister) a toothbrush, a rag, some toothpicks, and some olive oil. The prices were reasonable enough that at the end of the project, we let the students keep the coins that they cleaned. Please e-mail me if you have any questions about using roman coins in your lesson plans.
