    1489-ii113-2.jpg That coin is the perfect example of my collecting style. The date
    is nice but the rest of the coin suffers. I hope to up-grade one day,
    but even many of these are listed as "Common" 250 or more pieces
    collectable, "Scarce" 101-250 pieces collectable, "Very Scarce"
    50-100 pieces collectable, they very rarely become available thru
    the venues I use. The above figures are per Levinson's book.

    This Patard is from the Ghent mint. Not the prettiest of
    coins, I will look for an upgrade.

    This Kortling is from the Gottingen mint. One of the
    few times when mixed numerals are used, M CCCCLXXX8,
    in the date.

    This Half Schwertgroschen comes from Schneeberg.
    Of all the places for damage to the planchet to occur,
    it would have to involve the date. :(:mad::banghead:

    This Double Griffon from the Malines mint. I never realized how
    rare the coins were that were dated 1486 and 1487. The few that
    are obtainable, approximately 8 different coins, very rarely show
    up at auctions themselves. The other 20+ coins are very rare,
    less than 6 or fewer of each that are collectable.

    I'll post a few more next week. I feel like I've hijacked
    this thread. I hope the members don't get bored. Till then.

    It's not a hijack so much as inevitable. I knew you were gonna be in the driver's seat from 1500 back. Not many of the rest of us can participate as much.

    Are you sure that’s not just a crude flan (1488 I-227a Saxony)? It might make you feel less conflicted an otherwise handsome coin.:angelic:

    I have a VERY small number of undated coins of this period but only 1 more dated, then I am out. I am enjoying seeing your pieces. It is striking that the designs of many 16th century coins were already established in the 15th century. Keep up the good work !

    Before I start posting again, is there anything that I could do
    differently to make this more interesting? Let me know.

    As far as I am concerned, the more information on each coin, the better

    This and the preceding piece are the only ones I have with
    the date 1486. Many coins that have the date are very rare or
    rarely come up for auction.

    The medieval "5" looks like a modern "7".
