Although offered as an anonymous collection, the coins offered in this sale are widely considered to be that of Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild and no doubt contains those coins which were either not required or were duplicates of those already housed in the British Museum, to whom Rothschild’s collection had been bequeathed upon his death in 1898.
