R_535_w.jpg

I have never been able to produce a decent photograph of a coin myself, but recently my old friend Mauseus very kindly photographed a batch for me. Looking at the results I became conscious of how mixed their conditions are, but I have decided to add them to some albums nevertheless, and this is the first. I would be grateful for any corrections/ additions to the attributions I have given.

I am a very general collector, and here are examples of a few of the areas I am collecting. These are all from scans, which do not do the actual coins justice.

Cohen IV 264-265, BMCG 7, SNG Cop 333, Lingren 1146. "Apparently unlisted dies. This coin is so large that special dies must have been prepared". (see whited49's gallery on Forvm). This specimen has a different die pair, though probably by the same engraver.

Struck for Khusro II, but using modified types of Heraclius. There are 2 sizes, the usual small ones (mine is 5.9 gm, 18.5 mm) and these larger module ones, about 4 times as heavy and double the diameter. How the two were valued against each other is a mystery.

Athens, dekadrachm90 viewsThis is a British Museum electrotype (made by Robert Ready in the late 19th century with his RR mark on the edge) of the largest circulating Greek coin. With the price of these at about $500,000 dollars when they come on the market a good quality reproduction like this is the nearest most of us will come to handling one of them.
