Assessment[edit]

I'm going to uphold this assessment at mid importance because, I with a fair amount of numismatic knowledge had not known of this to exist before research on wikipedia. The requirements for a higher ranking would have a number of casual collectors with knowledge of it. While I have no doubt that some do find this an important article, I feel it doesn't qualify within the ranking system. Joe I 10:23, 6 August 2006 (UTC)

Hun caucases?[edit]

It is unclear what the "Hun caucases", mentioned in the lead, are. Is this a region of the Caucasus (note spelling)? Edurant 17:16, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Walha-kurn?[edit]

I restored "citation needed" for this. We can't use Tjurkö bracteates as a source, and even if we could, that article prefers reading "walha-kurn" as "gold" over "bracteate". Jon kare (talk) 09:30, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
