Ex Col. Hermann-Joseph Lückger, Germany (1864-1951). Lückger was a German entrepreneur in the textile industry and amateur historian and collector of art.

Notes: 1) Lückger’s citation from RIC is not to Vol. VII, which was not published yet, but to vol. V, part I, where Claudius II consecration issues are catalogued after the catalogue of his reign. Furthermore, he cites RIC by its authors Mattingly and Sydenham as “M&S”; 2) From 310 AD onwards, Constantine started to claim descent from Claudius II. This claim was intirely fictitious, but became accepted history within a few years. Aproximately seven years later, the portrait of Claudius II was put on coins by all the western mints, along with Constantine’s other imperial forebears, Constantius I and Maximian.
