  1. I have to say it does have a very similar look. Interesting. Thanks
  2. So a bit of a long shot, and definitely one for all you bronze collectors. I have been going back through my Victoria half pennies and came across this one. A 1862 Half Penny with peculiar obtrusion's from under the F of HALF. I no longer have my microscope as it broke and I haven't got around to getting another, so have spent a good while trying to capture what I can see under a loop. I have also drawn a very crude sketch of what the F should be like and what mine is like. Has anyone seen this before? Is it noted somewhere? Any idea's would be appreciated. Thanks guys
  3. So have just been informed the top one was found in England, the bottom one was found in Italy and had been in someone's collection for a long time.
  4. The second was sold a Aulerques (Aulerci) Cenomans AR Denier. It is 10.4 mm to 11.7 mm and weighs 1.24 grams. Would anyone have a reference for this particular coin. Thanks again Brian
  5. This is the first. I have been trawling the internet archives as well as the images of LaTour to pin point this coin. It has an obverse which looks very like the stylised head of the Boar and Eye Potin of the Senones, but after that I really can't say. It weighs 7.1g with a Dia: 16.3 mm - 17.4mm. and is 4.5 mm thick. The picture here shows it in 3 different lights. Thank you.

    Counterstamped Penny - HELP

    Thanks Guys Very much appreciate you taking the time. Agree about the wear on the coin. I will also look into the book. Brian
  8. Here is a one I am looking for help on. It is a counterstamped 1797 Cartwheel Penny. The logo is clearly the Elephant & Castle and very professional for a counterstamp. Any idea's? Has anyone seen one before? Got this off a friend who knew I liked this type of thing so not for sale Thanks all in advance

    1981 Circulation Ten Pence

    Took my predecimal florin collection of Eliz II into the large ten pence coins all the way to 1992. I have also been trying to find all of the variants set out in Davies, not an easy task. However I am struggling to get a 1981 Circulation issue. Can anyone help. Thanks
  10. Thanks guys. Think I have narrowed it down to a variant of RIC IX Arles 9a. Still haven't found or seen another example of the coin. Obv: VALENTINI-ANVS PF AVG - pearl diademed, draped, cuirassed bust right This is were it changes a bit: Rev: SECVRITA-S REIPVBLICAE -Victory advancing holding wreath and palm - OF in left Field, II in right - CONST (mintmark) in exergue The spacing of the last S in SECVRITAS after the wreath is not usual. I have also seen numerous single I's and III's in right field but none with II, other than the ones of Valens.
  11. Been on there Rob, unfortunately can't seem to find a match, unless I have missed something.
  12. Hi Folks Been trying to find a reference for this coin for a while. I believe it is Valentinian, which I am not sure. It has Victory holding a wreath with OF to left field and II to right. The exergue is the mintmark CONST. I have looked at all the RIC pages online, at least the ones I know about, and still haven't been able to find a reference to it. Thanks
  13. Hi All I have started buying a number of ancient coins recently and am really enjoying the research. This is one of my latest a Northumbrian styca. I believe it is an Irregular strike, side one being +EARDVVLF round a central cross. The other side is more problematic. I had someone suggest it as the moneyer MONNE, but I just can't see it. Just throwing it out here to see if any of you knowledgeable folks have any idea. Thanks
