I bought them on eBay.
I received over 50 and these were in pretty good shape.
The rest are soaking in olive oil.

Don,
My computer crashed and I'm on a borrowed laptop.
I will have to re-take the photos when I get my computer up and running again.

Perhaps in the meantime, the photos posted can be saved to your pictures and enlarged?
I'm just not that computer smart...


Best Wishes,

Scott

Don,
Thanks!

Soon I hope to learn more about the others I have soaking.

Is there a website that could help me with identifications?

Best,

Scott

AU24K,
What coins (here or others you may have) have yet to be ID-ed?
Don in SoCal
Don,
I have several early Moroccan coins and many Ancients.
I had many specimens ID'd by my College Course Anthropology Professor while attending College.
Unfortunately, I still have many yet to ID.
None are silver or gold.....

Most of the ancients appear to be Valentinian in approximate date range,
but I'm not certain of correct attribution.

I can provide photos of close-ups using a coin magnifier.
I shant waste anyone's time with details on coin's photos so weak as to be unascertainable.
If you would like to assist, I'll post only a few at a time so as to not overwhelm your assistance.

Be Well, my Friend!

Happy Easter!
HE HAS ARISEN! :notworthy:

Best,

Scott

Tell your Grandkids, "Thank You!"

I'll work on taking some quality photos in the next few days.
I'll take photos of each side and have them labelled for ease of discussion of each.
Do you have knowledge of both Ancient AND Early Moroccan?
