Sale, Morton and Eden, London, June 27, 2006, lot 416 [see note 1]. Christopher Foley, F.S.A, London, by 2014; [sale, Woolley and Wallis, Salisbury, Wiltshire, 16 October 2014, lot 266 (unsold)]; possibly sold through eBay [see note 2].

Note 1: The Woolley and Wallis printed catalogue erroneously lists the coin as having been sold at Dix, Noonan and Webb on June 27, 2006; this information is corrected in the on-line Woolley and Wallis catalogue.

Note 2: Per consultation with external experts, many of the coins that were unsold at Woolley and Wallis were offered on eBay (see correspondence, April 30, 2021, curatorial object file).

Note: This electronic record was created from historic documentation that does not necessarily reflect the Yale University Art Gallery’s complete or current knowledge about the object. Review and updating of such records is ongoing.
