    I think your entire collection will be more appropriate to be named the great panzerman collection ;)

    I was always told not to ask the cost of anything I can't buy, but I'm curious if I ever will. Lol

    I find that a lot. People will look at a coin and ask the value. I usually appreciate its beautifull design, history, pedigree.

    These three pieces are from the David Cervin collection. He had an
    extensive pre 1501 AD dated collection. It was sold in 2003.

    I first did exactly that. The value. But I'm beginning to look at coins differently. I can't say idc about value but I care more about just having something nice. Something I like. Just don't know if I'll ever afford anything like these nice coins. They look like they cost thousands. They are all very nice. Maybe I'll start looking at history. Thank for showing.

    Wow, that one is awesome. I've been wanting a Wildman, but alot of the time they are poorly struck. This looks nicer than some of the AU or MS examples.

    A solidus of Anthemius (467-472). Actually from two famous collections.
    It is from the Bramhall Collection, a gift from Robert Bridge. It's Robert Bridge who is really interesting:-

    Robert Bridge (1904-1997) was a gifted linguist - fluent in German, Italian, and French - who found application for his talents in Britain's secret intelligence service. He spent WWII in military intelligence and after the war became Berlin station chief for MI6. Among his more interesting assignments can be mentioned his interrogation of the infamous Gestapo chief of Rome, Herbert Kappler, who was captured by the British while unsuccessfully trying to seek refuge in the Vatican. Berlin in the immediate post war period was a focal point for espionage, and in much later years Bridge would privately describe experiences that seem straight out of John le Carré - the secret station office entered through what appeared to be an ordinary shop, late night meetings in a cemetery with an eastern source, and his abiding anger toward one of the "Cambridge Spies" with whom he had worked and whom he blamed for many deaths.

    Bridge was also one of the most prominent 20th century English collectors of Byzantine coins, and began collecting in earnest around the 1960s. Many coins from his collection are cited in MIB 1 and 2, and 18 of his coins are illustrated on the plates. In 1990, he donated to the British Museum 274 Byzantine coins previously unrepresented in the national collection (including a solidus of the revolt of Heraclius). Much of his remaining collection was sold in a 1990 Glendining's sale (catalogued by Baldwin's), Byzantine Coins from the R.N. Bridge Collection. Anthemius.jpg
