    I am doing some provenance research and am finding some coins with Ex. Biaggi collection with respective lot numbers.

    From my understanding, and especially this CoinsWeekely article incl. references, the Roman gold coins exists in a privately issued catalog compiled by Silvia Hurter. Also hear this exists in a book - and guess that is were the respective lot-numbers finds its reference?

    I am very interested to hear from anyone with an issue of this catalogue or book so I can confirm some specific lot-numbers.

    Looking forward to hear from you!

    Lot 606 - a Hadrian aureus with FIDES PUBLICA on the reverse.

    Would love to see an image of the depicted coin and accompanying text if any.

    Thats wonderful. Thanks a lot for your help!

    This particular coin is also Ex. Santamaria from the Magnaguti Collection lot 442 in Nummis Historia Part III (1950).

    You don’t happen to have this reference as well? It’s part 3 of a 12 book series of the Alessandro Magnaguti collection.

    Happy to help. And I unfortunately don't have Magnaguti on-hand.
