jfp7375 Posted July 24, 2022 · Member Share Posted July 24, 2022 (edited) Hello Everyone - Today I received something very special in the mail. This coin came from Artemide 59e - this is my first ever auction win, my first ever Roman Republican coin, and my best/most expensive coin thus far. Needless to say, I am really happy with the purchase. So: first I selfishly just wanted to show the coin off because I'm so excited about it 😁 L. Manlius Torquatus, AR Denarius 82 BC Obv: L. MANLI PRO. Q.; helmeted head of Roma right Rev: L. SVLLA I[M or MP]; Sulla in quadriga right, being crowned by angel-form-Victory flying above 3.83g 16.50mm Crawford 367//5; B 4 or 5 Second, I wanted to ask "Where do I start if I want to try to dig up provenance on this coin?". I know people dig through old auction catalogues and try to match photos, but where do you even begin? Is it possible to do this using online resources like ACsearch and CoinArchives.com, or do you need access to physical auction catalogues? Finding old provenance on any of my coins is a really exciting prospect, and as I begin to acquire more higher end pieces such as this one, I think there's a better shot of digging up such records. Thanks! Edited July 24, 2022 by jfp7375 22 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
