2 x London Folles

(1/2) > >>

maridvnvm:
For those who know my collecting focus you will know that I don't really focus on the output of London but I did have the opportunity to buy a couple of London Folles from the Rauceby Hoard recently and I must admit to being bery pleased with them.

The Rauceby hoard is  a pot hoard found in Rauceby, UK in 2017. The hoard was given the reference 2017 T649 by the British Museum who catalogued the hoard and had quite a mix of content but seems to date to the Tetrarchy based on the latest coins in the hoard.

Very nice Martin. I especially like the Maximinus, its a nice early example. I have the Severus one myself, mine was purchased from FORVM and was originally from the Errett Bishop Collection.

Congratulate, Martin, 👍

Two excellent examples Martin.

Severus is hard to find in such good condition, an emperor that I have yet to add to my own collection for that reason.

well done!

Best regards,

Steve
