You must have an exquisite collection by now, Overlord. In 40 years of "collecting", I have been able to buy less than what you have already shown here. Oesho probably bought the rest ;) I always advise Dutch newbies to consider staying away from modern Dutch coins and Roman bronzes to avoid ending up with a collection like their neighbour and I mention Indian coins, but I don't think many take that advice.
