Nope, I don't have any sadly... But if I get the chance to buy one, I may buy it! I like any part of biblical history!
There is a photo of Noah in the original post.
And I gave away a silver bullion coin with Noah's Ark on it in last January's giveaway.
As to experts on Middle East coins, I dunno. I am definitely NOT one.
Photobucket has slid so far down into the slimy suck that I avoid it like the plague it has become. That's very tragic, considering how good it used to be, once upon a time. They managed to totally ruin it and make it unusable. I'd have paid them a small fee to maintain it as it was, but since they've become so sleazy (look at some of those popup ads!), I bailed on them and won't pay them one red cent.
That giant, obstructive watermark they plastered over your coin seems to be a recent symptom of their diseased business tactics.
Hey, that's a cool counterstamped DB half, though. Nice!
@Nas won that one in last January's giveaway. They're pretty affordable, especially considering how large and impressive looking they are. When I bought the one for the giveaway and saw it, I kind of wished I'd ordered one for myself.
PS- you're right- @Noah Finney needs a Noah's Ark coin. We'll have to do something about that.
My oldest coin is a 1835 Capped Bust half dime with large date.
Very nice coin, I really admire those bust types.
Appears to be an 1835,
Yours is a sight better than mine. Mine didn't cost me anything, though. I dug it up while detecting at an old meeting house site in North Carolina.
It was surprisingly shallow in the ground, right in the grassroots, barely half an inch deep. This was the case with another half dime on a plantation site in Georgia.
Apparently the really small coins like this did not always sink very deeply into the ground. I've dug similarly shallow 1830s buttons on some sites.
Ha, ha, ha. I didn't have my morning coffee and was still trying to get used to writing 2019. Thanks. I've edited it.
Sorry, I missed the detail about the Roman Noah's Ark coins you mentioned. Never heard of these. Would love to see pictures of such.
I REALLY love the Brittanica. The reverse is beautiful.
My oldest coin is an 1802 draped bust half cent.
so, since we all hate Photobucket, what would you suggest using?
I use CollectiveCoin for coin pictures, now.
I just noticed that has the "1/000" error in the fraction. Those are cool.
