QUERY: ANCIENT COIN REPLICA MAKER SOUGHT

Luke Griffin writes:

Coins of the Bible bookmark First, thanks to your loyal readers, I was able to fill in the holes in my collection and get pictures of coins to produce a bookmark of ancient coins of the Bible. Since so many of your readers are addicted to reading about coins, they might want to get some of those to mark their place. They come in packs of 10 for $3.50, or cheaper in bulk. See www.housetohouse.com/store/Product.aspx?pid=348 .

Also, I'm hoping to shoot for a DVD along this same topic. I was wondering if you or any of your readers happen to know someone that makes coin replicas the same way they were made in ancient Rome/Israel? I'd like to interview someone on this process, and also film the process as part of the DVD. If you know of anyone, or happen to be someone that does that, I'd love to talk to you. Contact me at Luke@housetohouse.com

D I Greenhalgh or Grunal, or Dave the Moneyer Good question. I don't know, but hopefully our readers can help. The defunct Gallery Mint used to demonstrate coin striking at coin shows in the U.S. Currently active, but working in the U.K. is Dave Greenhalgh a.k.a. Grunal, or Dave the Moneyer. -Editor
