Clain-Stefanelli 3755*. Grierson 283. Kroh 69 (5 stars): “The sale contained 3304 lots, the finest ever offered. The catalogue was prepared with the utmost care (and the able assistance of Dr. Max von Bahrfeldt) and the introduction was written by a very young Herbert A. Cahn... This catalogue is so excellent, it has been frequently utilized as a basic reference (à la Pozzi). Originals are very rare.” Spring 84 [also listed under “Most important sales of struck Roman Republican coins”]. Ex Douglas Saville. Ex RBW Library.
