    I am researching provenance for my ancient coins and would love some help.

    First off - I have traced a specific coin to CNG 72 lot 1327 June 14th 2006:
    L. Marcius Philippus. 57 BC. AR Denarius (3.88 g, 3h). Rome mint. Diademed head of Ancus Marcius right; lituus behind / Equestrian statue standing right on aqueduct; flower below horse. Crawford 425/1; Sydenham 919; Marcia 28. Good VF, deep gray and iridescent toning, minor porosity under tone. Wonderful portrait.
    From the Douglas O. Rosenberg Collection.

    I have using Newman Numismatic Portal found some information on Douglas O. Rosenberg:
    - Possibly Chicago-based
    - Active giving talks
    - Collected ancient coins and possibly sold it through CNG in the 2006-2007.

    My questions are the following:
    1 Does anyone have a profile of the collector?
    2 Can anyone help be trace the specific coin further back?
    3 Was it indeed Rosenberg who sold this coin at CNG72 lot 1327 or were there sales before ending up at CNG 72?

    Thanks for any help with this :)

    Here is a photo of the coin from CNG 72

    I might be wrong but I believe when they say ‘from’ a collection it means directly from that collection, while ‘ex’ means it was previously sold through other sales before this particular auction

    Perhaps someone has the CNG 72 catalog at hand?

    The coin has been sold twice by CNG ; in 2006 for 200$ and probably later in their Web shop for 245$. Same description for the two sales :
    "From the Douglas O. Rosenberg Collection."

    Thanks for looking up. Using acsearch, that’s as far as I got too
    Hope perhaps the catalog says some more about its provenance or the collector.
