The Edward Sawyer Collection

FORVM is pleased to offer the Edward Sawyer collection of interesting, attractive and very rare Roman coins. The primary theme of the collection is a type set of Roman denominations in high grade. A second theme is emperors with reigns lasting less than a year. Perhaps these themes will inspire your own collecting plans or perhaps you will find coins here that fit your own collection goals.
