CORRECTION: IMAGES OF GRATIANUS SOLIDUS FROM THE LYONS MINT

Regarding Philippe de Henaut's query about the Gratianus Solidus from the Lyons mint, Michael Luck writes:

Look at the three figures provided, Figure One and Figure Three are the same coin. How can this be? A mix up?

Michael has an eagle eye! He is correct about the duplicate image - this was my fault, not Philippe's. I managed to put the wrong link in for the 1st image. The corrected figures are below, and our webmaster Bruce Perdue has corrected the E-Sylum archive version of the article. Sorry! -Editor

Specimen 1

Specimen 2

Specimen 3

Michael adds:

I got worried as I thought maybe the Lyons gold coin was first in one European collection then passed somehow through fate to another.
