One of a collection of 456 Roman coins formed for study purposes by Professor Giles F. Carter, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at Eastern Michigan University. Some of the coins were acquired primarily to undertake metallurgical analysis on them, and are donated to us with the intention that they should continue to be used as such. These are a very welcome resource for the Museum, but they would not be accessioned as part of our curatorial collection. Other coins were acquired for the study of types and varieties, and at least 200 of these would be accessioned. The final selection would be made after acceptance by the Syndicate.: CM.7612-2007
