Bar Kokhba Revolt Zuz ex Vespasian
« on: June 23, 2020, 08:24:34 pm »
I recently added another Bar Kokhba Revolt Zuz to my collection. The Zuz is well struck along with an unusually clear Vespasian undertype.

I've been looking to learn more about Menashe Landman without much success. If anyone knows something about him, I would love to hear it.

Enjoy,

Great coin Nemo.  These overstuck coins tell such an amazing story. 

I've been after one of these for a long time.  Money is always the issue...

Nice variant on coin collecting theme's, these were also in use during Hadrian of course, some have still a recognizable features

some thing on my bucket list, but Bar Kokhba Revolt coin are very expensive i do not know why but it's true, same with Judaea reverses on roman minted coins

thank you for charring

All the Best,
Eric

Apparently Menashe Landman is an antiquities dealer based out of Haifa, though there is indeed little about him online.

Thanks Aarmale, I figured if anyone knew something about him it would be you.  I see he's sited in a variety of publications but that all I could find.
