Peus starts into autumn with ancient coins
The core of the ancient part of the forthcoming fall sale of Dr. Busso Peus Nachfolger at Frankfurt am Main is formed by a recognizably old and very cultivated collection of Roman Imperial coins with special emphasis on rare and beautiful bronzes.
5: Augustus, 27 BCE-14 CE. Bronze. Guadan 988; RPC 11. 8.66g. Very rare.
All denominations are present, spanning from large medallions down to small quadrantes, and the collection contains many rarities and pieces with impressive pedigrees.
7: Septimius Severus and Julia Domna. Bronze medallion, homonoia issue with the isle of Kos. BMC 90; Franke / Nollé 626/627. 25.43g. 3rd known specimen ? By far the best preserved of the known specimens.
Special emphasis deserves the section of Roman Provincial coins with pieces of great importance that have not been on the market for almost 100 years.
This collection is accompanied by an interesting selection of Greek coins with a wonderful Tetradrachm of Athens from the Pozzi and Spencer-Churchill collection and a small but nice group of Byzantine coins.
15: Brandenburg-Bayreuth. Christian, 1603-1655 Oval medal 1628. Brockmann 94; Fischer/Maué 2. 115; Menadier 1901; Slg. Wilmersdörffer 552. 44 x 34 mm, 21.70g. Extremely rare.
A highlight of the medieval and modern part is the Collection of Renaissance and Baroque medals of Dr. Guenther Brockmann from Köln which is published under a separate cover. Moreover there is a vast collection of Jewish medals from Europe in this catalogue. In the main catalogue, however, there is a fine selection of coins from Frankfurt and interesting series from Sayn, Wied, Nassau and Trier.
18: 50 Reichspfennig 1924 E. J. 318. Very rare. Proof.
At the end of the main catalogue stands the usual offer of low priced coins in multiple lots and of paper money.
You will find the auction catalogue at the Peus website.
