Smith college student explains setting up a ancient coin display

Hi,

Below is a link for a video describing how a undergraduate student in classics set up display of Roman coins at the Smith college art museum. It provides some behind the scene activities that are not normally seen, including coin cleaning. I personally thought it was a shame they cleaned some beautiful coin surfaces.

Additionally, here is another link to the Berlin coin cabinet. Some outstanding coins and great searchable data-base. I think the best.

Thanks and enjoy,

Paul
