Clain-Stefanelli 1913*. Daehn 1969. Kroh p. 14, “The Lloyd collection is confined to the precious-metal Greek coins of Italy and Sicily… The 49 collotype plates are remarkable for their quality and variety. The British Museum later acquired this collection intact and sold or traded many of the duplicates in the 1950’s. Originals of this SNG are of course rare.”
