The Scott Collection of Superb Roman and Byzantine Coins
When FORVM obtains an estate collection, we often wonder what the collector was trying to achieve. It is obvious, Mr. Scott was a collector of superb and master portraits. By FORVM's definition a superb portrait is one that apears it could come to life. Many or most coin portraits actually lack this trait. A master portrait not only appears that it could come to life, but also makes an impression of what the subject was like, what they were thinking or how they felt. Please take a good look at Mr. Scott's portrait collection. We hope that you appreciate Mr. Scott's lifetime work, assembling this gallery of Roman and Byzantine masterpieces.
