In my opinion, one of the factors that makes a reference book
worth having is the listing of coins that cannot be seen
elsewhere -- those coins unique to a particular published
collection. Although not considered an 'essential' reference
Historisches Museum Frankurt am Main" lists 1400 Roman-Egyptian
coins and tokens in the collection of the museum at Frankfurt am
Main in Germany. This collection can boast a total of 33
otherwise unpublished coins, not counting minor variants of coin
types published elsewhere. Three of the 33 are lead 'tokens' and
30 represent various coin denominations. As part of my
researching it became convenient for me to list these, and since
it might interest others I share the list below. Any comments or
corrections would be appreciated.
