    Medieval coin?

    Just a quick thank you in this Free for All Forum. I have also responded to your reply in the World Coin Forum. Best regards, SRSNUM

    TWO MYSTERY COINS

    Many thanks JLS for responding and finally attributing this silver coin in my collection. It has dodged my best efforts at identifying it. My weakness in identifying medieval coinage is on display as is my weakness in the area of Arabic related coinage. Your supplying a reference work is most helpful too. Thanks again. I still have hope that the copper coin may also be attributed. Perhaps another expert in this forum may have the knowledge. Kindest regards, SRSNUM
  3. i HAVE TWO FOREIGN COINS IN MY COLLECTION THAT HAVE RESISTED MY ATTEMPTS AT ATTRIBUTION. ANY INFORMATION OR COMMENTS ABOUT THEM APPRECIATED. SILVER COIN-DIAMETER 14 mm, WEIGHT 0.35 GRAMS.

APPEARS TO HAVE A HORSE WITH BIRD ON IT'S BACK ON ONE SIDE AND ARABIC WRITING ON THE BACK. PLEASE SEE DIGITAL IMAGES BELOW. SRSNUM

    Medieval coin?

    Need help with the attribution of the coin pictured in the digital images below. The reverse of the coin appears to be incused images of the obverse (embossed?). The coin appears to be 14mm in diameter and weighs 0.35 grams. Any ideas or comments are most appreciated. SRSNUM

    1860 farthing, an observation

    Many thanks to Coinery and Colin G. for their clarifying comments.
  6. In the previous post, several digital images of the obverse of the 1860 farthing in my collection were shown. Below is a duplicate of the "F:D:" image from the previous post. Is this image an example of the colon after "F:D"with the designation of 1 1/2 (1.5) stops? The following cropped image is taken from the aboutfarthings site of the 1860 farthing. It is designated obverse 3 and is from the same area for comparison. Is this a full colon (2 stops)? The following cropped image of an 1860 farthing is taken from the aboutfarthings site and is designated obverse 3a. Is this colon an example with designation 1 stop? Comments much appreciated. srsnum

    The last two images are from the aboutfarthings website. The balance of the images are the coin in my collection. Trust this makes my description clearer.

    Trust the following is a better image of the 3b reverse of the 1860 farthing.

    The software supplied with my digital microscope allowed me to take the original digital images and crop them. The 'image size' command allowed further reduction in the number of kilobytes of each image. The total amounted to 485.62 K. Seems that the resolution proved adequate.

    BELOW FIND AN EXAMPLE OF AN 1860 FARTHING FROM MY COLLECTION. ANY COMMENTS APPRECIATED. SEE DIGITAL IMAGES. TRUST THEY MAY PROVE USEFUL. FOR REFERENCE, THE FINAL IMAGES ARE THE TOOTHED, REVERSE B(1 LARGE ROCK) AND OBVERSE 3 (5 BERRIES), OF THE 1860 FARTHING.

    English token??

    Anyone wish to hazard a guess as to the identity and origin of this token? Thought it might be from Great Britain due to the "6P". See images below.

    1855 England 1/2 penny

    Below, find a description of the coin at hand as I see it in person. 1. THE FIRST '5' APPEARS TO BE REPUNCHED OR RE-ENGRAVED OVER ANOTHER '5'. THERE APPEARS TO BE A TINY RAISED LINE @ THE LOWER RIGHT OF THE LOWER LOOP OF THE '8'. 2. THE LAST '5' APPEARS TO BE REPUNCHED OVER A ZERO? OR PERHAPS ANOTHER NUMBER (4,7,8,9?) AS THERE ARE REMNANTS IN THE FORM OF RAISED LINES INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE LOOP. THE LOOP OF LAST '5' IS ALSO SOMEWHAT MIS-SHAPEN WHEN COMPARED WITH FIRST '5'. 3. THERE IS A LARGE SPACE BETWEEN THE 'BALL OF THE LOOP AND THE UPRIGHT OF THE LAST '5'. THE RESULT IS A SMALLER UPRIGHT OF THE LAST '5' ABOUT 1/2 THE SIZE OF THE 'NORMAL' FIRST '5'. THIS ALSO RESULTS IN THE LOOP OF THE LAST '5' BEING DIS-CONNECTED FROM THE UPRIGHT AS THERE IS A SPACE BETWEEN THE END OF THE LOOP AND THE UPRIGHT. 4. AS OPPOSED TO THE ABOVE, THERE IS A SMALL SPACE BETWEEN THE BALL OF THE LOOP AND THE UPRIGHT IN THE “NORMAL” FIRST '5'. Do members have this variety in their collections or recall seeing this variety or similar varieties of this type for the 1855 1/2 penny? Any additional comments much appreciated. SRS
