A journey to search my soul

This is a blog of my personal collections. The purpose of this blog is to educate myself and public in regards to antiquities especially related to religion and calligraphy. I welcome everyone to input their feedback in this blog which they think would be helpful.

More for collections

Have contacted my antique dealers. Agreed on price and delivery of below items :
1) 1 ancient coin from Malacca Sultanate era - rare piece.
2) 1 ancient coin from Johor Sultanate - Sultan Mahmud Mangkat di Julang. Rare piece. Too expensive but I might make a fortune in future. Similar coin was sold in London auction for USDXXXX back in 2006.
3) 5 pieces of handwritten Qurans originally from Indian SubContinent. I got a good deal as my dealer is desperately in need of money. We agreed on a few installments. More Indian/Persian Qurans for my collections. Dated from 500 years ago.
4) In negotiation with another dealer on some Aceh gold coins. Will know the result Insyallah next week.

End of the day leaving me broke......for now.
