Minilist 32 - June 17, 2014

Mainly ancient coins from the city of Cyzicus in Mysia

Welcome to our 32nd Mini-List issued since the beginning of 2013. This list consists mainly of ancient coins from the city of Cyzicus in Mysia, although there are a few other ancient coins included and even 3 modern pieces. We have many more coins from Cyzicus and others will be offered in future lists. A number of the coins listed were part of the famed Henry Lindgren collection and are pictures in his classic works on Greek bronze coins.

We hope to have more lists out this summer on a more or less regular schedule. We have thousands of coins to offer but not enough time to work them up. We will also be offering more coins in our Vcoin store as the summer progresses as well.
