    Asian coin weights?

    @Sword Thank you very much, I didn't hold out much hope of finding anything out especially on the second one. Is there any indication of date for the Tael? I had seen the Hang Seng bank mentioned in a few of the pages I'd googled but nothing seemed to match the ingot. I shall add them both to the 'unusual' section of my collection

    Help with Roman bronze coin

    This is the first ever Roman coin I've bought in twenty five years of collecting coins and tokens and I know nothing about the subject but felt I should have at least one in my collection after this length of time. I've not pushed the boat out far spending only £8 and would like to know if it's 1) genuine 2) from what period it's from. The diameter is 22mm with a weight of 3.1gm. Many thanks guys

    Help with Roman bronze coin

    He did have another at £22 and I'm thinking I should of bought that one too! It wasn't in such good condition though but slightly bigger. If he still has it at the march fair I may go for it

    Help with Roman bronze coin

    I'm not sure I shall start collecting them yet Paddy just felt that I should own at least one example. I was surprised by both the price and condition which made me suspect that it might not have been genuine but my doubts have been laid to rest!

    Peter Nichols cabinets

    Make sure it's securly bolted to the floor or concreted in. As a teenager I can remember the place where my mum worked being burgled and the safe, about two foot high and almost as deep, was found out in the carpark some 150 meters away. While they didn't get in it the last thing you want is your collection rattling around inside if they do try to move it

    10p a-z

    I did splash out and buy a full set and I've just sold a spare letter 'B' I had, maybe I should pull the 'A' I'm selling and hang on to it far a while longer!
