Swedish newspaper article from the 18th century, advertising a coin collection. From "Inrikes Tidningar", page 4, on 30 January 1795. As a historical archaeologist, I work with this type of material a lot. A very rough translation from 🇸🇪 to 🇺🇸 below: "A larger Coin Collection of Swedish Regents, both in Gold as well as Silver Medallions, namely Anund Jacob, Ragnvald Knaphövde, Canute, Sverker the Younger, Håkan the Red, Eric the Lisp, Waldemar, Magnus Ladulås, Magnus the Caresser, Queen Margaret, Eric of Pomerania, Charles Knutsson, Christian II, Sten Sture the Elder, Hans and Johan II, Svante Sture, Sten Sture the Younger, Gustaf I, Niclas Sture or Daljunkern, Eric XIV, Princess Cecilia, the Dukes Johan and Charles, Johan III, Queen Catharina, Sigismund, Duke Johan of Östergötland, Charles IX, as Duke and as King, Gustav Adolph, Queen Mar. Eleonora, Queen Christina, Charles Gustav, Queen Hedvig Eleonora, Charles XI, Queen Ulrica Eleonora, Charles XII, Queen Ulrica Elonora, Frederick, Adolph Frederick, Gustav III, Duke Charles, as well as foreign Medallions, struck against Sweden, also newer Medallions for old Kings in Sweden, struck by Hedlinger, Fehrman, Carlsten and Hartman, as well as private Tokens over famous Men and Women in Sweden; an established Catalogue of these coins, which all are beautiful originals, may be viewed at Carl Fredr. Höök's Office in the House No. 42 by Iron Square Street, where also the price may be agreed upon."
