    1. Hera

      Hera

      Here is a nice hoard of coins originating from the middle east, they offer a great variety of types and sizes. I would say that there is a larger than average amount of Roman Provincial coins than normally seen in Hoards from this region judging by the size of the coins.

      A good amount of smaller Roman coins as well as some Byzantine, Judean, widow’s mites, and some very large Ptolemy coins that are very scarce and often valuable at this size.

      Also there is a nice amount of Greek and Islamic coins in here with a lot of the noticeable serrated edge ones that everyone loves that often show such great detail after cleaning. All in all a really nice varied hoard with some nice looking artefacts and jewellery in it.

    2. 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.

    3. Virtus (Cleaned)

      Virtus (Cleaned)

      These ancient Roman arrows are fantastic, they have all been sympathetically and professionally cleaned by an enthusiastic collector. They must of taken many many hours to clean so nicely yet a lot of them retain a wonderful patina.

      They range in size from about 1.5cm to some that are about 8cm long, on average they are probably around 2-4 cm each in length. These are very varied as some of them have holes in them where they would have been filled with poison, others are barbed, some have just two raised edges while others have three or four.

      These will make a fantastic display piece or accompaniment to any ancient coin collection.

    4. 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.

    5. Helios

      Helios

      Helios is mainly made up of larger and thicker Roman Provincial coins. It will offer a fascinating look into collecting these wonderful coins. Many of them adorn wonderful images including, Battles, and Forts etc.

      This hoard measures in at around 18Kg, everyone recognises purchasing larger uncleaned Roman coins has become increasingly more difficult over the last few years. The price and, and collectability of these kind of larger coins rise steadily in excess of their smaller counterparts.

      A lot of these already offer some tantalising detail before cleaning and could probably be considered as an increasingly rare opportunity to purchase such coins. Generally in size they are at last the size of a Roman follis but with a great thickness to them as well that comes with these nice early coins.

      Cleaning wise we imagine that generally results should be quite good as a lot of them show some detail already and the alloy and thickness of these early coins lends itself well to the preservation of time. It should however be noted though that these kinds of coins were often circulated for centuries so although they might clean up well could have been worn through period use.

    7. Remus

      Remus

      Here we have a Holyland hoard of coins; there is a really wide variety and range of coins here. The Holyland was the centre of the earth in ancient times so coins were very often traded from numerous cultures making for extremely varied and interesting cleaning. Typically you will find, Roman, Judean, Nabatean, Seleucid, Byzantine, Islamic, widows mites and other fascinating coinage from extensive trade in the area as well as different periods of occupation.

      There is a good mix of coins here ranging from extremely small to extremely large. Coins from this region often can contain almost anything!

    8. Romulus

      Romulus

      Here is a small hoard of larger uncleaned Roman coins, amongst recent years these types of early large coins have been harder and harder to get hold of. They always prove to be extremely popular and make a welcome change to cleaning the smaller late Roman coins.

      Because they are fairly crusty there could be almost anything in here, we really do only have the large favourable size to go on with the odd coin giving a few clues away.

    9. Pan

      Pan

      Here we have some crustier lower grade Greek coins that will prove to be a bit more challenging to clean than normal. Greek coins do tend to clean up well as long as you persist with them; some of the coins here show some detail but the majority of them will take a fair bit of cleaning before they start to show the fruits of your labour but priced accordingly.

      On the plus side because these coins are on the crustier side it really does mean that there could be almost anything in here.

    10. 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.

    15. Hieron

      Hieron

      This is without question one of the nicest hoards of coins, if not the nicest hoard that we have ever had the pleasure of seeing, weighing in at just under 6KG. All of the coins in this spectacular hoard are exactly the same. They are ALL Hieron II from 274-216 BC, Head of Poseidon left with Trident and dolphins at the sides. Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian deities of the pantheon in Greek mythology being "God of the Sea".

      From a historical point of view these are wonderful, from an investment point of view they are fantastic! If you have a good look around at the prices of these coins in F/VF condition you will see that these are fantastic value for money even at these trade prices..

      As you can see from the pictures the detail of these coins is striking and there is no doubt in my mind that most will clean up to be F/VF. This hoard of coins is so nice I suspect in fact that they might have had some very light cleaning or preservative applied prior to us purchasing them. As you can see all the Patina is intact so IF they have had a light clean it has been done wonderfully and leaves further scope for cleaning on the more encrusted coins.

      Well as they say a "picture tells a thousand words" definitely not one to miss out on.
