Weissenberg Family Collection of Judaean and related coins. Lot of fifty-four (54) coins. Formed over two-generations, this collection is largely comprised of Judaean issues in silver, bronze, and lead dating from the Hasmonean period until the Bar Kochba revolt, as well as various Roman issues related directly or indirectly to the Jewish Wars. Lot also includes a small number of civic issues of the Holy Land. Fine to EF. For photographs and detailed descriptions of each coin, please see www.cngcoins.com/lot_744.pdf.
Regarding the collecting of the "Judaea Capta" series, the Weissenbergs did not limit themselves to what many numismatists define as "Judaea Capta" issues, opining that many other victoria types reference the "definitive" Flavian victory – the victory over the Jews. Thus the observer will note that this lot contains some issues that are not typically identified as Jewish-related issues in the standard literature.
