Alain POINSIGNON – A propos d’un petit ensemble de bractéates alsaciennes...
Excerpted from the Bulletin de la Société Française de Numismatique, 45e année, N° 8, Novembre 1990, pp 915-920.

This article discusses the so-called “double-faced” pfennigs of Strasbourg and provides a few clarifications regarding certain municipal issuances produced in Offenburg. The author rejects the conventional ascription to Haguenau of the pfennig “with two eagles facing each other” and suggests that this coin should instead be ascribed to Strasbourg.

Michel BUR and Alain POINSIGNON – Monnaies, jetons, dénéraux, méreaux, enseignes, ampoules et plombs de scellement trouvés au château d’Epinal.
Excerpted from: Michel Bur – Le château d’Epinal, XIIIe-XVIe siècle, Paris 2002, 280 pages (pages 155 to 181).

Excavations at the castle of Epinal, carried out by Mr. Michel Bur, emeritus professor of Medieval History at the University of Nancy II, were divided up into several campaigns that took place between 1984 and 1992. Abundant materials were discovered, in particular in terms of numismatic finds. This article enables us to discover all of the coins and monetary objects that were revealed, with a few very rare examples issued in Lorraine, including two types that were previously unknown.

Michel DHENIN and Alain POINSIGNON - The Coins of the Treasure of Colmar.
Excerpted from “Le Trésor de Colmar” (catalogue of the exhibition that was held in Colmar, at the Unterlinden Museum, from 29 May through 26 September 1999). Paris / Colmar, 1999, 149 pages (pages 80 to 96). New article reviewed and updated in March, 2007.

The treasure was discovered in May 1863 by J.-B. Demangeot, during renovation work carried out in a house he owned, located in Colmar, on the corner of Rue Weinemer and Rue des Juifs. It would seem that some items were pillaged by the workers at the time of the discovery. It was the finder's son, Captain Demangeot, who sold most of this treasure to the Cluny Museum in 1923. Amongst the plundered objects, some were sold by the workers to a second-hand goods dealer, who sold them, in turn, to someone by the name of Fleischauer in 1864, who then donated them to the Unterlinden Museum. Other items were sold in Germany. Some coins were also donated to the Municipal Library of Colmar. In addition to the coins, which we assume were much more numerous at the time of the discovery, the following items have been preserved from this treasure: fifteen rings, including one of the oldest known Jewish wedding rings, two chatons, a circular “headdress”, a belt, three metal clasps, two brooches, thirteen sconces, three buttons, five agraffes, two appliqué letters: A and R, a double goblet, a belt loop, a buckle tongue, a small silver ingot, a key, a stiletto and a hinge.
This treasure was hidden during the plague of 1348-1349, which led to the anti-Semitic persecution that scourged Europe at that time.

Michel Dhénin, the General Curator of the French National Library (Bibliothèque Nationale de France), Department of Coins, Medals and Antiques and Alain Poinsignon, numismatist, an expert at the Court of Appeals of Colmar, produced a description of this Treasure. Several new coins have thus been documented, and this study also made it possible to redetermine the terminus ante quem of certain Swiss bracteates. This new edition proposes a few reattributions following on from some recent publications; some bibliographic items have also been added on.
