What's wrong with this site?

What's wrong with this site? Hundreds of coin pics have disappeared, comments have been lost, and I can't replace the missing pictures. Does anybody know if this is going to be straitened out?

Oh god, Mark. That's awful! Words can't express the agony that would make me feel. I'm so sorry.

"eight Roman silver Republican Denarius coins, dated between 252 BC and 2 BC."

I thought the first Roman denarii were minted around 211 B.C. Who's dating these coins?

Weight

The weight of 3.1g is also low for an aureus of this time period and is suspiciously close to 1/10th of an ounce. The forger may have taken a 1/10th ounce bullion gold coin and struck this forgery. -h

Thanks for your opinion, Barry. I had wondered about it. I don't think I paid enough for it to bother getting someone to examine it in person. I'll have to check my records. -h
