Premium Uncleaned Coins from the Balkans

These coins are NOT Junk, trust me.

FYI - I was too lazy to count out these special coins and Sheri did it for me in the back yard. She can be counted to not 'cherry-pick' any of them and she counted them into bags of 100 each, and that is important for bulk buyers.

In the past, we have referred to these as ‘beginner coins’ or ‘excellent for honing your cleaning skills' or ‘practice coins.’ These are not.

As seen in the photo, each of these LRBC issues are simply covered with soft dirt that will respond best with DW soaks and mechanical cleaning with dental picks, common scalpels, and tooth brushing, etc.

These ‘Balkan Coins’ are just the same as our True Premium issues, but just a bit smaller. Æ 3, Æ 3/4s and Æ4s that didn't quite meet the size.

Our opinion is that, properly cleaned and restored, nearly all these coins will clean up to VF or better condition, with a green patina and easily attributed via RIC.

Remember, you're buying at a 'per coin' price.

Happy Hunting? For sure! Don't forget to add flips and pages to your order...you'll need them, trust me.

I got in on the second and third batches of these. Both contained some very nice coins, but there seemed to be some variation between the two. My first lot contained larger coins, including an As of Hadrian, while the second contained more typical AE3 sized pieces. Either way, these are the best buy for uncleaned coins right now. I will certainly order more (or try, at least) when they become available...

I'm still early in the cleaning process, but so far they are up to snuff. Most have lots of good details and many have a gorgeous green, turquoise, or green-yellow patina. I've found lots of partially silvered coins and even a few denari, but don't expect to find much silver unless you buy more than a few coins (as with any uncleaned lot). All in all, I'm very satisfied :)..

What a pleasure to still find uncleaned coins with unexpected surprises. A very good value

I purchased 15 of these, and received one or two extra. They really do live up to the description. Very dirty, including several where you have no idea what's in there (I love surprises). The detail is excellent on 90% of them, right down to the delicate hair waves, which is often the first detail to fade. So far it's all Constantine to Valens, maybe a barbaric and two others are uncertain (not clean enough yet to judge). But detail is tremendous all around and definitely worth the price...
