Who is Marc R Breitsprecher?

I was born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin and ancient coins have been my passion for 40 years.

1967: I started collecting US coins with a Christmas gift of 5 Indian pennies.

1977: My first ancient coin, a Pontius Pilate bronze, (which I still own) was purchased at the Mid-America show hosted in Milwaukee.

Over the next three decades I amassed an eclectic assortment of ancient coins, buying/selling/trading at shows, via catalogs and MUCH later on the internet.

1996: The internet opened a new and exciting door for us and we started selling coins on Ebay under the username Ancient Imports.

1999: We opened our award-winning site Ancientimports.com with a ton of help from family friend Kendrick Erickson.

2002: We joined VCoins as charter members. Back then VCoins consisted of 20 dealers but with the vision and direction of Bill Puetz it grew to nearly 150 dealers.

2005: I left my career job as a window clerk with the USPS to become a full- time dealer.

2020: We just finished one of our best years ever and look forward to a record-setting 2021!

Over the years we have handled and sold over 50,000 ancient coins so you can buy with confidence knowing that we have both the experience and knowledge to help you find the right coins for your collection.

We are based in Hazelhurst, WI where I work with my wife Melissa to offer a large selection of interesting ancient coins at fair prices.
