Ancient Uncleaned Coins - Bulk Lots
Ancient Uncleaned Coins - Bulk Lots. Buy 1-1000 coins from the pile.
Mixed Islamic Uncleaned Coins from The Holyland - Islamic, Mamluk, Roman Imperial & Provincial and a stray Greek coin or two
You are buying 1 coin from the pile for $3.00. If you would like to buy more than 1 coin it will cost you more.
These all have details on before cleaning. They are as found and are uncleaned, unsorted and not picked through. Most will be Islamic or Mamluk. The percentage of other cultures would be 15% at best.
The coins range from 13-23mm with most being in the 17mm area.
You are buying TEN Ancient Roman Coins from the pile for $10.
These are the leftover from multiple batches. They are priced below what we paid for them. Theres still some good coins in these but for the most part you should use these to test your coin cleaning methods on. Please dont trial new methods on better quality coins. Some coins will be bent, mishapen, damaged or have been cut in half in antiquity.
Size range: 9-16mm. Of course we dont sit down and measure every coin so some may fall outside this range. Yes there are some obvious larger ones in the images and more follis/antoninianus sized coins but they have issues.
What do we mean by dirty? Please browse the photos to see the level of encrustation of these coins. They range from dirty to heavily encrusted. Theres a stray coin in there with decent detail but don't panic most should be dirty.
Whats the percentage of keepers going to be like? We don't know. If I cant see below the surface of the crud, the digger couldn't see below the surface of the crud so what you discover will be seen for the first time in 1700 years!
Of course being so encrusted a stray Byzantine or Islamic coin may rear itself but that's what makes this type of coin so MUCH FUN!
We have removed the photos of these coins to demonstrate they are not good coins.
These are the last of a few different batches. We have reduced the price because very few of these will be any good. There will be an occasional good coin in there but for the most part you should use these to test your coin cleaning abilities on. Do not use higher grade coins to test experimental proceedures on - USE THESE.
Size range will vary. There will be lots of worn coins in there, coins that have been cut in half in antiquity, coins that were used as jewellery and many other types of low grade coin.
