The Fire Hoard - Roman Silver
We have nicknamed this hoard "The Fire Hoard" because it was lost in a fire. We know that because they were found in an amalgamation - melted coins and black silver oxide on the outside formed a solid black ball. Inside the coins were still in nice condition, however, most are wavy and somewhat brittle due to the heat of the fire. We will add the coins here as they are cleaned. If a coin is wavy or bent, we will include that in the description. We can't say how many presentable coins will come out of The Fire Hoard. We expect it will be around 200 coins.
