Welcome to our 3rd list of 2010 and our sixth Web Only list. As usual there are no images but we can supply images of most coins priced at $25 or more. Just ask and we'll send them to you as soon as we can. These lists are done quickly and we apologize for spelling, grammar or other mistakes. Ordering information can be found at the end of the list. This list is smaller than our previous ones as we have been busy the past month writing our annual stock list of Israel/Palestine/Judaica which can also be found on our website.

Most lists are organized as follows: Ancient Jewish, Ancient Greek, Ancient Roman, Other Ancients (which include Greek Imperial, Islamic, Byzantine, Axumite etc.) followed by World Coins, Tokens and Medals which are listed in alphabetical order. When we have World Paper or Odd and Curious Money we will make mention of those in our introductory paragraphs. Please order by 5 digit inventory number when that is listed, otherwise use the description.

This list contains just over 100 items. The majority are new purchases made this past month. The list is highlighted by the first listing of large Roman collection we recently bought. Most are low grade, but priced accordingly. Also many early modern European coins. As soon as we get this list sent to our webmaster we will begin writing our spring auction catalog. We still have room for some nice coins, tokens, banknotes and medals with a retail value of at least $100. Please contact us before sending us anything.
