@Rick Stachowski, can you post a detail image of "DEI" on your 1893 Canadian Nickel?

I am now a collector of unique coins/medals, and not trying to complete sets, which have the same design. I love the diversity of the designs in my collection, and my collection as a whole has re-sparked my interest in the hobby.
(This last one belongs with the first one, my bad)
Some may find these shocking to see...
Ancient Greece (Kingdom of Macedon): silver "Mercenaries" drachm of King Perseus, ca. 175-170 BC
(NGC Ch MS; Strike 5/5, Surface 5/5)
Great Britain: gilt copper proof halfpenny of George III, Soho Mint, 1806
(PCGS PR65 DCAM, ex-NGC PR64 CAM; population 1 with 1 higher as of 11/04/2017)
Liberia: proof copper cent, 1847
(PCGS PR65 BN, ex-NGC PF64 BN; population 1- finest graded at either service as of 11/04/2017)
France: copper specimen striking of a 10-centime pattern (essai), 1848
(PCGS SP65 RB; population 1- the only example certified by PCGS as of 11/04/2017)
Say, those are some nice hooters!
I quite like that square Canadian barn owl, for some inexplicable reason. That's one modern I would willingly put in my collection.
The Cameroon Athenian tribute is neat, too (what's the mounted stone?) Like 'em both.
I love this coin.
Ancient Greece (Spartans in Taras, Calabria, Italy): silver drachm, Athena and owl, ca. 302-281 BC
(NGC XF; Strike 5/5, Surface 5/5)
jasper stone. There are some awesome owls flying around, if you can catch them.
Yes, I Googled the two types you posted and saw some other appealing recent issues, as well. Great stuff.
I could've been tempted into an owl-themed collection...
I'm with you. So many nice ones, both new, and ancient, to have an excellent sub-collection. Very tempting.
