I buy mostly graded Ancients on line but have noticed in the last year that the fake ancient coins are becoming more difficult to tell apart from the authentic.  The metal appears to be genuine silver.   The Lydia Croesus especially.   Unfortunately NGC has taken over sixty calendar days to grade the coins I send them for Standard grading(supposed to be twenty working days), by the time I receive them it's too late to return them to Sellers or file a claim on eBay.

Wait.  Are we supposed to be using wrought iron forceps/tweezers to handle our coins now?  I'm behind on reading new issues of the Numismatist so excuse my ignorance.

From what I understand them or soft white, cloth gloves.
