Thanks. I am not a Byzantine collector but I have been told that it is a common coin and rather rare in this condition. The Anastasius is larger and heavier than the one in my collection but a slightly lessor grade. It is my understanding that the larger ones were minted earlier. Is there a way to date them by size and weight? I bid on the lot because of the Florian and the Hannabalianus which are still soaking. Later-

OK Guys-

Here are the two coins that were the reason I bid on this lot- #1 the Hannaballianus and #2 the Florian. Everything else was extra. Looks like the extra is a lot better than I expected. The other Romans are cleaning up real nice and you have seen a couple of the Byzantines from the lot.

First I cleaned them with soap and brushed them with a tooth brush. I soaked them until now and brushed them again. I applied Dellers for preservation. The Florian has a nice obverse but the reverse could use some attention. The Hannaballianus has a nice obverse but the reverse (and obverse) looks like it was possibly scraped by whoever found it. Later-

Hey Guys-

Here are some of the Romans from this lot. I have already looked them all up but you can if you want to. I will be sending one of them to Dane at Wildwinds because it is not yet listed there. Some of my coins are on Wildwinds. Can you find the one I am sending? Later-

Hey an update Guys-

Dane at Wildwinds has now posted one of the coins from this lot. I think this is about number 7 for me now for coins on Wildwinds. Woot! RIC says it is a R4. Whatever- LOL.

Here is the pic that was posted on Wildwinds. It is hard to scan coins for Dane in a white background. The coin in hand is an uncleaned gray green.
Later-

Congrats on the additional listing at Wildwinds. Always nice when a coin from your collection is used as a reference at a study site or in a book.
