  • Roman Countermarks

    Hi all, if you have countermarks on Roman coins in your collections or know where to get fotos of such, please email me and if possible make the fotos available for use in www.romancoins.info
    We intend to build a large database of scans for the collector community.
    Thx

    Many of the coins listed in the British Museum catalogues have countermarks, and accurate line drawings of these countermarks are provided along with the obverse and reverse discriptions.

    For example, in Coins of the Roman Empire in the British Museum, Volume I, pages 181 to 194, 28 countermarks are illustrated by line drawing. Countermarks are also listed in the "Legends" index of these volumes.

    RIC Volume I lists countermarks in Index VII, but this is less helpful. RIC Hunter lists them in under Index VI:Legends.
