Nero (A.D. 54-68) Egypt Tetradrachm (various reverses) Good Fine_obv

Nero (A.D. 54-68) Egypt Tetradrachm (various reverses) Good Fine

Nero (A.D. 54-68) is one of the most famous Roman Emperors. His mother married Claudius (A.D. 41-54) and manoeuvred Nero as his successor. He was under better influences at the start of his reign but as he managed to rid himself of these he devolved into the tyrant famous today! Eventually, after repeated revolts, Nero committed suicide but legends of his survival persisted for hundreds of years! We offer a billon silver Tetradrachm of Nero from Alexandria in Egypt, there are various reverses which will come described on the ticket with each coin. They grade Good Fine meaning they have circulated but you can see the design. A famous and Scarce emperor’s coin from Egypt, an unusual province; this bargain will sell fast!

In 1993 the Bank of England celebrated the 200th Anniversary of the issue of the first £5 note.

We are offering Uncut sheets of the £5 note printed by the Sheet Fed Process. (C108) The sheetfed notes have the first of the new prefix. In fact, we have seen the AC01 Prefix sell for £110 on its own. Another dealer is selling this Uncut Sheet of 3 for £200 – our price is just £95. Remember only 1500 sheets were ever issued!
