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 group, and am not disappointed. Still soaking, and after a quick brushing I see one is a small medieval silver coin. With work and all it will take a while to finish, but I am very happy with these...

This is a good deal! The price is right and altough I've only attributed one coin, there seems to be a good variety. All the coins are still soaking in D.W. but many are starting to show some detail. The attributed coin is an AE 3 Constantine I minted in Siscia. Getting uncleaned coins is an adventure. You become the first person in about 1600 years to see the surface of a coin. Plus you never know what coins you may get. It's the next best compared to digging them out of the ground yourself...

Of the ten uncleaned Roman coins from the Balkans were nine late empire coins of commonly found emperors and issues--Constantine, Constans, Probus, and Valens. As has been typical of my purchases from NRC, all of the coins cleaned up in VF condition, some with lovely patinas. With the nine was a large rather crusty coin that held a fine surprise--a Hadrian with Concord (I believe) on the reverse. Believing the coin to be silver, I cleaned too zealously and took off patina in two places. I could kick myself, but I'm very pleased with this find: A copper Hadrian in Good condition. Whether this coin found its way into the hoard by some strange circumstance, or by the hand of Kevin Sandes who wanted to add something special to the order--I am quite happy with this the most exciting reveal of an uncleaned coin in my several hunts...

Received the coins and looking at them there was one with a hole in it and several clearly poor quality. There were a few decent condition coins but it was obvious that they have been picked thru as some showed the first few letters cleaned off ( const ) and one with its edge ground to expose what kind of metal was in the coin. Overall not a bad deal just less than I was expecting. It is truly hard for individual collectors to find real dirt covered and unsearched coins...
