So long story short I've gotten my hands on some "ancient" coins (By American standards) and I spent 2 weeks removing the muck with electrolysis, some numismatics would probably burn me at the stake but I figured it's more interesting to know what I have in my hand than to remove any precious patina.

So anyways, here's my new hobby:

I'll drop them by how much interest this thread gathers, but I'll start with the following, whatcha think.



























Turns out the last coin is from 360 AD icon_chew

Nice, I then assume you're buying the coins rather than looking with a metal detector. Amirite?

Well no, they are properly stolen straight from the grave actually.

My brother works as a carpenter and a guy he worked with sold some coins that I got to clean, the guy who sold them is from the middle east somewhere and was talking about grave robbing as a past time hobby lol.

It made cleaning them alittle more special since they havent been passed around so much, even though the worth of these coins is negliable looking up what they are and what they sell for.

I've been considering getting a metal detector. Seems fun. Sadly, in communist Sweden, you need a permit to use one.

Similar laws here, find out a secluded place where an ancient battle was held and go early morning!
