Numismatics blog post 4 – Emily Graham

I spoke too soon… More pfennigs!

Once more, I returned to the Harris for my placement. I was apparently too eager with my last blog on the museum. I ended spending the day cataloguing over 100 pfennigs! Although it wasn’t the most entertaining task, I’m pretty proud of the amount of work I got done.

Also, I helped Matt in looking through the Harris’ collection of medals. There were some amazing medals, including ones showing elephants!

Hopefully, next Wednesday I’ll finish writing labels for each coin, and be able to move onto photographing them.
