    I went to a coin shop today and got a bunch of coins. Here are a few of the more interesting ones I wanted to share. The 1793 Bermuda 1 penny isn't in great shape but it's a rare find and something I've wanted for awhile.

    Thanks for sharing. You always find really cool stuff!
    I'm going to my first coin show since November 2019 PC (pre-covid). I'm hoping that there are a couple dealers with some world boxes to dig through.

    I went to this dealer one time before. I had to travel to get a Covid shot and stopped while I was there. I didn't have time to look at everything but he had a lot of nice stuff. It was bugging me so I finally took at day off and went back. It's an hour drive but worth it. I haven't been to a show since about 2019 too. I miss doing that.

    Love the Cambodian.... I think you have the re-strike there.

    Funny because recently someone (maybe you?) posted about it and I thought, I should get one of those. And then I found one.

    Actually another member did. I got hooked. I have received my re-strike but still waiting on my business strike from Prague. They're a pretty cool coin to have.

    Congratulations btw... nice example.

    I've never seen the Bermuda coin in the wild, wouldn't mind finding one though.

    It's one of those things you have to buy when you see it.

    Nice Cameroon. I got caught up in those... you wouldn't believe me if I told you how much I spent on that 2 yr series. I don't regret it though.

    I looked into the Bermuda penny. It's subject to re-strike just like the 1860 Cambodian. Was re struck in a few different base metals and silver. The hunt is on....thanks I was looking for a project with substance. Any pointers? I prefer a original first but will entertain re strikes as well no problem.

    Suggestion...look at the 24-25 Togo run.

    I think I have one of the Togo coins - whichever is the more common one. I got lucky many years ago when I went into a coin shop and they had recently bought an album from someone who had some really nice coins. The employee told me anything I wanted in it was 50 cents, and I got a lot of great coins from Africa and other harder to find places. Coins from colonies and more obscure places is one of my biggest collecting interests.

    If you want a Bermuda penny I see there are some on eBay. Beyond that I don't know. You might also be interested in the 1788 Barbados penny if you don't have one.

    There's something about a silver coin that looks like it was just made five minutes ago.

    That, and the Katanga Cross coin. Far and away the coolest coin struck anywhere in 1961 and with a great story to go with it.

    Same coin in gold.
