    Unique Pieces Of My Ottoman Collection 2,
    1 st one is 1 kurush og Sultan Mustafa the second,
    2nd one is 10 kurush of Sultan Reshad..
    My question is whether the crack in the first coin lowers the value of the coin.I think is it is mint error..

    Hello

    The crack on the first one certainly affects the value of the coin in a negative manner, otherwise, it is probably unique :) due to this specific mint defect
    Please keep on posting your ottoman coins ( and the others too ) !
    Waiting for the #3 !

    Cheers
    Philippe

    Dear Philippe,
    I have another coin with the same mint error.Somehow this is not a rare mint error for ottoman coins bigger than 30 mms.
    I will post #3 a.s.a.p

    More Ottomans

    Hello numizmatikci and everybody here in oriental coins !

    Just wanted to share these 2 which arrived today
    Not identified yet completely, but should have been minted by the Ottomans in Tunis :smile
    They will help us waiting for #3 ( the Steel penny was found in a so called "unsearched ebayesque roll" :D )

    These 2 coins were dug from...feebay
    Actually they are both silver - or at least debased silver or billon hence the copperish look ! )

    In fact raw is best most of the time,after cleaninng they lose their experience,who touched them,who kissed them :)
