      This is an absolutely lovely late Roman hoard; if you are looking for almost entirely premium condition coins then this is the one for you. All the coins have a lovely patina and as you can see virtually every coin already shows wonderful detail prior to cleaning. This hoard has been extremely well preserved as a lot of late Roman coins did not last the test of time very well due to the thickness of the coins and often unfavourable ground conditions.

      In honesty most of the coins will need no cleaning at all, or only very minor cleaning. Certainly I would recommend nothing more than distilled water on most of these or simply a bit of wax. Getting uncleaned premiums like this is almost impossible as they are so strong condition wise any normal dealer would simply sell them separately as they will be worth a lot more money.

      Have a look at the few coins that have simply had wax put on them, these took literally two minutes to do and have not even been in distilled water. These will be great fun to clean and attribute.

      Every now and then we get some of these very sympathetically cleaned and unattributed Greek coins from a collector in Europe as he is selling off his collection. Hours and hours have been painstakingly spent cleaning these coins in a way to preserve the Patina.

      These wonderful classical Greek coins are extremely collectable and once attributed can command goods amounts of money. They have a lot of mythical pictures on them including the Trident of Poseidon, wonderful Horses and Gods like Zeus.

      These coins are always a real treat to own and attribute and tend to always sell quickly.

      This hoard consists of a good deal of Roman and Greek coins, with some larger examples of both mixed in. It is quite hard to see exactly what kind of coins could be included here as a lot of them are crusty enough to retain most of their secrets still, yet others do give a glimpse of what lies beneath. Some very nice coins here by size and weight compared to a lot of other hoards that we get.

      These unlearned coins are in typical in condition; I would say that they would be particularly suited to those people wanting to take some time to do them properly as there could well be some very interesting finds here. They have a wonderful feel in hand and just need to be cleaned to unlock the secrets.

      Here we have a Middle Eastern hoard that has influences from Greece, the early Roman Empire as well as some Byzantine and possibly Islamic coins in it. The vast majority of these coins are very large for a Middle Eastern hoard. Some are showing some detail already and should prove to be interesting coins. The few smaller coins tend to be the earlier ones as well. I have only noticed one or two smaller Roman silver coins in here but they did seem to have nice detail on them. We always struggle to get earlier hoards mainly made up of larger coins from this region, but when they come up they are quite interesting and varied.

      Ajax

      Here we have an early Greek hoard, they are mainly made up of the chunky slightly domed coins with the odd variation as a rough guess I would say the vast majority of them will be around 200 BC . A fair few of them already show some detail, you can see some with horses on some of them as well as mythical creatures and Gods. These types of hoards are generally very popular as everyone loves Greek coins and the values tend to be a lot higher than their roman counterparts. This is due in part to the interesting subject matter and also due to the fact that they are not so common and tend to clean up better. This hoard should be very interesting to clean and attribute. Although some show some good detail a lot of them will hold onto their secrets until they have been cleaned.

    7. Constantine

      Constantine

      This is a mainly low-grade late Roman hoard with a few Byzantine coins and the odd Greek coin mixed in. We often get asked for Roman coins at lower price points. This one fits the bill, they are certainly the cheapest coins that we have ever sold, and they are in typical uncleaned condition. Some show some promising detail so will be cleanable and attributable, but others will never clean up as a lot of late Roman coins were made of a very thin poor quality bronze. But we are sure that these are the cheapest ethically obtained late Roman coins available anywhere on the Internet at the moment. They also seem to show a far better variety than most others available on the Internet.

    8. Atticus

      Atticus

      This is a rather pleasant hoard of mainly Roman coins; it has a nice mix of the rarer large coins as well as the smaller denominations. There is also a nice helping of silver coins in this hoard, we must have seen at least 30 or 40 while we were pouring the coins out on the table to take photographs, but as we don’t stage our photographs there are only a couple visible in the pictures.

      This hoard seems to have some very interesting coins in it and should prove to be a lot of fun when cleaning and attributing them. A good few coins are already showing some detail so I would say it is “over average” for a hoard of this nature.

    9. Olympia

      Olympia

      This is a mainly Greek hoard with some interesting earlier Roman coins in it. Everyone always loves cleaning Greek coins as they often contain mythical creatures and can often prove to be very interesting and more valuable than their Roman counterparts. We believe that there should be some very interesting coins contained in this hoard. It has a good feel to it and a few that are already showing detail are ones that we have never seen before.

      If you are looking for something with some real variety and rarity that is mainly Greek then we think that this hoard should not disappoint.

    10. Hypnos

      Hypnos

      This is a hoard that contains a good percentage of classical Greek coins depicting ancient Gods, creatures and horses coins along with some interesting earlier Roman and Persian coins. A lot of the coins are reasonably encrusted at the moment but being earlier thicker coins they will generally take well to cleaning because the bronze used in the manufacturing process was far superior to that of a lot of later coins. With a bit of patience these will make for some very interesting cleaning and attributing that could potentially lead to some exciting finds. There is also a variety of artefacts within this hoard including a few rings, brooches and miscellaneous items.

    11. Aurora

      Aurora

      This is the best hoard that we have seen in quite some time for a number of reasons. As it is from central Europe it has a great mix of coins in it. I would say that around 90% are Roman including some provincials with the remainder being Greek.

      In terms of a breakdown of this hoard it has a healthy concentration of larger coins with a lot of them showing some promising detail. A lot of the smaller coins here are approaching premium uncleaned condition with a good amount of detail already showing. I would say that a well over average amount of these smaller coins would clean up. After running a handful under the tap you could see promising details on well over half of them as the top layers of dirt rinsed off.

      This hoard has one of the highest concentrations of Roman Silver coins, or Silver washed coins in it that I can ever remember seeing. They are mainly Roman, but I did also notice a few Greek ones so it is quite unusual in that regard as Greek Silver coins can be fairly valuable.

      My overall impression of this hoard is very good for cleaning; it has a good variety of coins in a range of sizes in over average condition. The added benefit of the higher amounts of Roman silver coins is especially pleasing. It should prove to be very interesting to clean, with some of the coins starting to show detail with just a rinse in water.

    12. Theseus

      Theseus

      Here we have an interesting mix of very large mainly Roman coins as well as a lot of the classical Greek coins that everyone loves to collect.

      This hoard of coins should prove to be a very interesting clean as a lot of them have yet to give any indication of what lies beneath. These earlier coins especially the Greek do tend to end up retaining good detail under the crust after cleaning as the quality of the metal used was so good. In terms of cleaning up these large Roman they can be very rewarding but often they can be fairly worn due to a long life span while in circulation. The only way to tell will be to see how they come up.

    13. Bali

      Bali

      This is a better than average hoard from Jerusalem as it has a good amount of coins that already have some detail showing. These hoards historically are some of most interesting and varied around. Apart from some interesting coins this hoard has a variety of interesting hoard artefact’s including some Rings and Arrows along with some other curious objects. There also seems to be a few silver coins in here but they are mainly Islamic by the looks of it.

      Coin wise it shows some nice Greek, Roman, Seleucid, Islamic and Byzantine that is characteristic for coins that were traded in the centre of the 'ancient world'.

      From previous experience these hoards can yield very rare coins that were often traded in the Holyland. The ground conditions in the region are favourable for preservation although it should be noted that some of the coins in the region were in circulation for very long periods of time.

    14. Prometheus

      Prometheus

      This is a great mainly Greek hoard; it is very dusty but even after a simple rinse under the tap you can see that a lot of them already show good detail with no effort at all. I would think that the vast majority of these coins will clean up really well given some time. And certainly just a few days in distilled water will start to show some great results judging by the ones we rinsed off here.

      Everyone loves Greek coins; they are rarer and more collectable than their Roman counterparts and often because of the better alloys used they tend to clean up showing a greater level of detail.

      All of these coins are nice and chunky as you would expect from earlier Greek coins.

      Undoubtedly these coins will make really interesting cleaning and attribution. We did not want to give them all a rinse before taking the pictures to get the dust and loose dirt off so it really will be a surprise as to what is in here.

    15. Nemesis

      Nemesis

      This is a very handsome 8Kg hoard that is made up of a mix of mainly Greek with some early Roman Provincials. The Roman coins are generally Follis sized and have a nice feel to them. Some of the Roman coins have some visible legend and a lot of them have fairly raised portions indicating that some good detail will probably show after cleaning. The Greek coins certainly won’t disappoint, as they are the early classical type and have a range of wonderful images on them including, Gods, Dolphins, Tridents, Horses, Griffins etc.

      Our feelings are that a good percentage of these coins will clean up really well with a bit of time and patience. We would probably say that they are well over average in terms of having detail showing prior to cleaning.

      This kind of hoard has the potential to find some really interesting and valuable coins especially for those people who collect Greek coins. The popularity of these kinds of uncleaned coins will certainly mean that this hoard will last long.
