Bishop's Wood Hoard To Be Sold Over 100 Years After its Discovery

Not all hoards on the market are recent finds. For a case in point, see this press release about the upcoming sale of the Bishop's Wood Hoard of 1895. See

Other times, groups of coins from older hoards also come up for sale. A few years back coins from the "Paeonian Hoard" sold by Sotheby's in 1969 came onto the market. I understand a coin dealer who had bought a large group of the coins back in 1969 decided to disburse some coins he had saved as he neared retirement.
