I plan to replace this thread with a new one and want to start it with a comprehensive, categorized, and organized first post.  I need everyone's help.  Please post your personal list of attribution links or your recommended links for others here.  Hopefully, I will then find a volunteer to categorize and organize all the links for a great first post for a new "Identification Links" thread.  Thanks for your help.

While not specific to a type or series,  I use acient coin search all the time and it helps attribute the majority of coins I look for.

Dear Joe,

I am happy to volunteer, especially as I started the original topic many years, and never updated it.

Here are links that I have on file.  I am sure that my list is incomplete so I will await further links from other forum members.
 
I think I can better summarise the list based on which to use under which circumstances. So someone starting an ID can consult the list and it is self-explanatory which to try first.

The collection of the Berlin museums with about 18000 ancient coins online is very helpful, especially for greek coins. It has a lot of rarities online you will find nowhere else, e.g. many Imhoof-Blumer plate coins, or the Reglin plate coins from Priene. Unfortunately you have to use german search terms.

Dear All,

Please continue to post links which you consider to be helpful.

Can you please also post any links to standard references which are lawfully available electronically (e.g. on archive.org, or google books) not already covered earlier. If there is a numiswiki article which already contains the link, then just state the name of that reference and the areas of coinage it covers e.g. Dattari for Alexandrian coinage.  If the numiswiki article does not contain the link, then please state that in your post, or even better, add it to the article itself.

Thanks.

Peter

Princeton University has a searchable collection of over 5000 ancient greek, roman, islamic and medieval coins.
http://libweb5.princeton.edu/numismatics/db.aspx [BROKEN LINK 5/16/2020]

As does Harvard, whose database, appears to be quite large: https://www.harvardartmuseums.org/collections
(I wish I knew that when I was undertaking a short course there a couple years ago)

Peter

Edit: just realised Numiswiki has an entry for Museum Collections which covers the above and more.

Hi,

I'm surprised there have not been any further posts here.

Can any members, particularly, the more experienced members, please share thoughts on how they would like to see this section categorised - ideally in a way that is scaleable as links are added in future.

Macedonian Kingdom: the bronze coinage:  http://coins.ekt.gr/Coins/coinsIntro.jsp?lang=en

I cannot believe I never knew about this one. There is a page for it actually on numiswiki.

It lists coins from published publications I do not have access to.

The American Numismatic Society Hellenistic Royal Coinages http://numismatics.org/hrc/.

In a post by the Numismatic Bibliomania Society in their E-Sylum of June 2, 2019, https://www.coinbooks.org/v22/club_nbs_esylum_v22n22.html you can see where the ANS announced the launch of a new online resource, Hellenistic Royal Coinages (HRC). The HRC covers Hellenistic coinage from ca. 323 to 31 BC. This site currently includes the coins struck by Alexander the Great and successor states, like the Seleukids and Ptolemies. Notably, the new HRC website serves as a "Union Catalogue" of existing online resources devoted to Hellenistic coinages. Users can search across all these sites simultaneously.

These sites include:
PELLA (http://numismatics.org/pella/), focused on coins naming Alexander the Great
Seleucid Coins Online (http://numismatics.org/sco/)
Ptolemaic Coins Online (http://numismatics.org/pco/).

A future version could include other Hellenistic dynasties including the Antigonid, Attalid, and Bactrian dynasties.

https://www.academia.edu has some wonderful academic papers on Roman coinage.
All are free to download.  You do not have to pay anything unless you are bulk downloading them.

An example is this one on Augustus bronzes.

This is part of the series "Coin Collections and Coin Hoards from Bulgaria" (CCCHBulg) of well made books about Bulgarian collections: https://www.forumancientcoins.com/numiswiki/view.asp?key=ccchbulg
They are all worth to have a look at  :).
