    My grandmother kept one in her purse. She emigrated from Poland as a child. I still have it, unfortunately I cleaned it harshly when she gave it to me back when I was eleven years old.

    Well, it looks like we're doing Poland! Let's go into the past . . . 1625, three-polker (KM 41 - one of two varieties I have). Sigismund III was king. Also known as Zygmunt III. He was a Vasa or Wasa, from Sweden.

    Oh, heck, here's the other variety of the same type. Still Poland, still 1625.

    Let's go even a bit deeper into Poland's past. A 1594 three-grosze.

    grosze-03-1594-igerM.94.1a.jpg
    I had little data on this coin. However, talerman provided me a wealth of data. I rather like talerman - this is not the first time he assumed I knew much more than I really know. And this is not the first time he gave me more information than I ever hoped to know about some of my coins.

    There is a detailed Polish catalogue of these coins by Tadeusz Iger: Katalog trojaków polskich (as you probably know, in Polish these 3 groschen coins are known as trojaks). He lists many different varieties in 1594. Your coin appears to be M.94.1a struck in Malbork (known as Marienburg during the centuries in which the town was controlled by the Germans). The two mint marks at the bottom of the reverse are those of Kacpra Goebla (the kind of O) and Gracjana Gonzalo (triangle), mint masters at Malbork. The lion rampant in the shield below the bust on the obverse is the arms of Jan Firlej Jr., crown treasurer,1590-1609.
