An interesting old collection, from which I too acquired a couple of coins.

Heynen's too was an interesting old German collection, but I think you're unlikely to find your coin in the Heynen catalogue of 1976, because that was the collection that Heynen, who died in 1970, donated to a German museum. Heynen was a friend of Reusing's, and at an earlier date had evidently sold or exchanged or given a substantial number of coins to Reusing, which are now coming back onto the market via the coin dealer Olding.

Thank you Curtis!  It's not easy finding out info if you don't read German.  Was Heynen's original collection documented somewhere?


I've updated the description to include Curtis' and Andrew's succinct biographies.

This nice little misattributed Vespasian came in today.  Listed as the common  RIC 684 it's actually the rare RIC 686

Picked this little rare coin up.  A denarius of Titus with a reverse of Vespasian.  It was listed as the common Vespasian, but the T is right there!

A Divus Vespasian denarius arrived today!

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-156280

Ex-Paul Schürer (1890-1976); Ex-Fritz Reusing (1874-1956) with handwritten tag.  Old scratches beneath a thick black patina.

I'm very happy to now have 2 coins from this amazing collection!  I know both David and Andrew also have purchased Flavians from this collection.  I hope to add a few more!

Enjoy

Terrific provenance, Jay.  Is the obverse lettering style typical for Rome mint denarii of this time period?  I note in particular the flourishes on the "D" in DIVVS and "I" in Vespasianus.  I don't actively collect in this area, so I'm not familiar with these lettering styles.  I'm used to much simpler forms.

Thanks! 

Yeah, pretty typical.  I have a few of these Divus types and they all seem to have some flare to the lettering.

Just as I uploaded the Divus coin the mailman knocked on the door and brought me this:

A curious denarius from Domitian that has me stumped.  See the "Mystery Domitian" thread.

Jay, I am a big fan of your sweet Vespasian denarius (oh, and your other recent additions as well)

=> hey, keep-up the good work (it's a pleasure to view your stuff)

Thanks Stevie!

This one arrived today.  I've been looking for a winged Minerva Victrix ever since David got a rare variant out from under me  Cool. Although listed as (C) in RIC it's actually quite difficult to find.  Auction picture was over exposed and lifeless.  This pic is very close to the coin in hand:

Well, here is a wonderful coin of Domitian with Mars reverse.  Holed in antiquity and probably plugged in the late 19th century, but I'm just guessing.  The provenance is simply amazing:

Ex-Manfred Olding 2019;
Ex-Sammlung Heynen;
Ex-Paul Schürer (1890-1976);
Ex-Fritz Reusing (1874-1956)

Comes with old tag probably from Heynen or Schürer. Olding tag incorrectly attributed to RIC 420 (different ending to legend)


http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-155767

I have another coin coming from this same old provenance collection.  I'll post it when it arrives.  I'm awaiting a copy of the 2019 auction catalog from Olding as well as the Sammlung Heynen catalog from 1976 so I can do some research on this amazing collection.  I know Andrew and David have also acquired coins from this collection so it will be a group effort.  It's also nice to know they are going to good homes!
This is a great coin Jay !!!

Vlad .

Last week this pretty rare coin of Vespasian, with the cista mystica reverse, arrived in the mail:

http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-156711

I already have one but it's really rough.  This one isn't the greatest either, but both the obverse and reverse are a definite upgrade.  Lovely little coin in hand of a hard to find type.
