Two major collections have been transferred from the Princeton University Art Museum for cataloguing and consultation with the Princeton University Numismatic Collection in Firestone Library. The bequest of Dan Fellows Platt, Class of 1895, comprises about 3,000 coins, with areas of great strength in the coinage of the Roman Republic, including early bronze Aes Grave, in silver issues of Augustus and Hadrian, and in coins of Renaissance Italy. The bequest of Ernest T. Dewald, Graduate School 1916, is particularly strong in Roman Imperial sestertii.
