Mardin Hoard

In 1972 the London firm A. H. Baldwin & Sons purchased a large collection of more than 13,000 uncleaned bronze Byzantine folles from a source in Germany. The coins were mostly in quite worn condition but were nevertheless of particular interest because about 17% (that is, just over 2,200) carried Islamic countermarks. This was then (and remains today) by far the largest single known group of such Islamic-countermarked folles. To read more about this hoard click Mardin Hoard.
