Clain-Stefanelli 1927*. Daehn 2045. Grierson p. 57, “Aujourd’hui dispersée. Il s’agit avant tout d’une collection de Monnaies Grecques, mais la série impériale romaine est importante.’ Kroh p. 10, “The most striking thing about this collection is the superb quality and style of the 3,152 coins (of which 2,520 are Greek) … Dispersed throughout the trade in the 1940’s and 1950’s, many of the finest items to appear in recent sales are ‘Jameson’ coins.”
