Ernst Justus Haeberlin (1847-1925) formed an extraordinary collection of the early cast coinages of the Roman Republic, and Aes Grave is the result of a life's work in numismatics. Clain-Stefanelli 3788*. Grierson 72. Kroh 68: "the first modern work on this series and is still utilized as a primary reference (due to the excellent illustrations). Originals are extremely rare."
