Constantinopolis commemorative coins (cheap)
 
I want to make a collection and do a study of Constantinoplis commemorative coins. I am looking for cheap unwanted ones, and don't mind if they are in low grade. HOWEVER: they must be fully identifiable with the officina. I would also trade you other ancient coins for them or sports cards :-). (trying to get rid of them). I will also trade USA or world coins for them. Any coin offers welcome, also any advice on doing my collection and study of these coins. Please send me a message or email. I would also like more info on the minor differences between types.
Thanks!
Nathan

I've never heard of anyone going into an in-depth collection of these but it sounds like a great idea. There are a ton of differences. Over a dozen mints and a few less common varieties like the GLORIA EXERCITVS reverses and YRBS ROMA medallions (not that these last are affordable).

The best place to load up I would think is ebay. They only cost a few dollars each.

Ok, I liked the idea of an in depth collection and these caught my eye. They are inexpensive as a whole, and have a interesting historical significance. I know of some people who are doing the same thing with the VRBS ROMA coins.

What are some special keywords to search?

Also if anyone has any homeless ones...

Thanks!
Nathan
