Minilist 21 - October 17, 2013

22 ancient and modern coins

Finally after a long break working on our Fall Auction Catalog, we are publishing this late in the week Mini-List just so you all know that we are still in business. Only about 22 coins but none have been listed on any of our mini-lists. Or at least we don't think so.
