Wow. How did you end up with so many coins?  Shocked
I always wonder how do they get out of the country they have been found?  Shocked

these are mostly bronzes with a high percentage of silver which means like 3-4%....they sell for about 1$ each as they are, i am a dealer conservator, this is actually a small amount compared to some i have had pass through my hands...5 gallons buckets and 50 gallon drums my friends...and if the collectors do not conserve them they corrode quickly usually....the museums know....i am personally responsible for conserving over 10,000 ancient bronze coins from europe and counting!...in this batch i am finding incredible medieval and some very rare roman types so far, and these are just a small part of one order of antiquities from the balkans, believe me, these coins are available in many places online as uncleaned coinage, ebay especially, and they can be effectively conserved with my process....the opportunity is very good right now fyi...it wont be forever....i lose about 25% because they are totally damaged, i attribute and sell to new collectors, everyone loves these coins here...so far the most valuable coin is antoninianus of mariniana c250...rare....also denar of bela ii c1350, very rare and perfect, some ring fragments too....b
