Coins of the Roman Republic From the Estate of an Anonymous French Collector

Although the name of the collector is unknown, his preferences are easily determined by examining his collection. Every coin in the collection is as nature left them, naturally toned. They have not been cleaned in harsh chemicals, as is so common with coins found today. This collection was almost certainly initially cataloged no later than 1974, since the collector's tags do not refer to Crawford and issue dates indicated on the collector's tags are pre-Crawford.
