A1_imitative_002.jpg
Class = A1 - Imitative [002]6.03 grams
24.8 mm
Imitative anonymous follis imitating the official Class A type under John I. Possibly of Balkan, or Asia Minor origin. Struck ca. 970 – 980 AD. Double struck, with crude, retrograde, and/or blundered legends on both obverse and reverse.

See Lampinen Imitative p. 154 for a similar imitative pieces where he writes, "The second phase of Balkan coinage production goes into high gear with the introduction of the anonymous follis series during the reign of John I (969 - 976). The explicit Christian imagery must have struck a chord with the recently converted Balkan masses because the official mint issues were accompanied by a fair quantity of copies, to meet the excess demand. These Christian issues would also be the prototypes for the initial coinage of several medieval Christian states, such as the first Crusader issues of Edessa and Antioch, medieval Armenia and distant Georgia in the Caucasus."

Here is a cabinet I built for a collector that combines multiple storage methods. There are several standard trays for raw coins, two open format drawers for thicker items such as slabs, two drawers for holding 2x2 flips/envelopes, and a single 4" deep drawer on the bottom.

Herod I - prutah (year 3 = either 40BC or 37BC)Hendin-489 / 1172 (01)
2.64 grams

The dating of these coins is subject to debate. Some say that because Herod was appointed Tetrarch of Samaria by Marc Antony in 42BC, that "year 3" would correspond to 40/39BC. Others feel that because Herod was appointed King of Judaea by the Roman Senate in 40BC, that "year three" should then represent 37BC. In all reality, the debate will most likely never be settled conclusively, one way or the other.
