Advice

What sort of advice? It just is not possible to tell from photographs whether these are authentic ancient coins or good modern casts. The Byzantine and late Roman coins are fairly common varieties, and I do not know enough about Islamic coins to venture an opinion.

I agree with you in your points which say stay in school,
i will stay in the school because this a highly competitive life is school, and i am proud of i am student in the life's school, because i learn new things every day.
In addition, i do not think about the drugs because the successful man do not pay attention for this silly things.
In brief, i thank you for your helpful advice which i did not ask you about.
If you have any helpful advice about these coins, i welcome. However, if you do not have any helpful advise, please do not write any comment for fun
thnx

From time to time, you visit this list and ask ask ask for free advice about ancient coins. I've never noticed you give anything back to the list in return.

Until you realize that on-line discussion is a two way street, and you start to contribute to the discussion here in a positive way, the good-natured banter you're now griping about is better than you deserve.

Dear Mr. Phil,

i can not deny that i visit this form 3 times every week at least because it is really helpful form and i learn a lot information from this form;however, when i put new coins in the form, some members think that i put these for enternment, and they do not realize that i really need help. I am really serious to be active member in this form, and show you new coins and antiques every week in order to discuss about. i am really proud of my membership in this form, so if you welcome to put threads and be active member, i will be very serious and i will show you the some pieces which you do not see in your life.

Attribution

You really do not even need books to attribute coins such as these. Just go to eBay and look at the coins there or to Vcoins and look at the coins there. You will see a lot of similar specimens and learn in doing so. I think at least some, perhaps most, of the members of this group feel that you are just using them as a free attribution service rather than doing your own homework. Surely, you can attribute basic coins by yourself by now! I do not intend to be critical or mean-spirited, but I seek to explain to you the lack of response to your posts.

They look cast to me. I can't tell for sure, but there looks like there is a kinda bubbly surface.

You can't really judge the surfaces from these highly compressed pictures.

This graininess seems to be caused by the scanning.
