The Henrik Agndal Collection of Countermarked Roman Coins

Henrik Agndal's collection of countermarked Roman Coins is remarkable not just for it large number of countermark types but also for the quality of the coins. Most countermarked coins are quite worn. Indeed some of these coins are worn and valued almost entirely for their countermarks. Many of the coins are, however, desirable not just for the countermark but also because they are superb attractive coins. While many of these coins may go to countermark specialist collectors, we suspect many will also go to collectors who have more interest in the coin. Perhaps this fascinating collection will provide inspiration for you to enter a new interesting specialty - countermarked Roman coins!

Click for a larger photo
Obverse countermarked with:

1. ∆ containing dot, in triangular punch, 6 x 5 mm, Howgego 670 (206 pcs). Not likely to be a denominational countermark.

2. Monogram of K and A, in shaped punch, 4 x 5 mm, Howgego 618 (52 pcs). The countermark likely refers to Calycadnum.
RP23196. Bronze AE 28, cf. SNG Levante Supp. 196 var. (same obv. die, different rev. leg.), SNG PfPS 1062 var.

Click for a larger photo

None of the (few) Artemis huntress groups noted matches this one. While 232 is similar, this coin is probably too late.
