    Got a lot in the mail yesterday, here's the highlights:

    A few of the UK's alphabet 10ps. The extra U will make good trade bait.

    My first 2019 foreigns.

    And my favorite bimetal coin, the Czech 50 korun. Surprisingly this was a date I still needed.

    1982 TRINIDAD & TOBAGO 5 cents KM#43a .925 silver 20th Anniversary of. Independence PROOF - EXTREMELY RARE Mintage-699 . After 20 years I find this 1 coin by itself and not in a set. I pounced on it for $100. It will make a very nice addition to my "Coins with Insects" coin collection. So thrilled to buy it. Sellers pics...

    Just double checked it, looks like something went wrong and it should be 1808/1809. I use this online calendar converter that is super useful for this.

    Yes - AH1223 is the accession year. Your coin I think is year 26 of the reign (in the curved symbol at the top of the first side). This would mean it was created around 1834 or 1835.

    Here are a few interesting pieces I came across while digging through an old box of random world coins. Nothing like home quarantine to get you to revisit some forgotten stockpiles. There’s some value in XF and above according to the NGC site.

    I own several Commodus Tetradrachms already but couldn't resist getting another. The simple matter is the same as always, was going extremely cheap.

    I'm always happy to add new Alexandrian Tets, especially when the price is right.

    Commodus (177 - 192 A.D.)
    Egypt, Alexandria
    Billon Tetradrachm
    O: M A KOM ANTѠ [C]ЄB [ЄVCЄB], laureate head right.
    R: Serapis seated left, holding sceptre; at his feet, Cerberus; [L]KH (date) in left field. Dated RY 28 = AD 187/8

    After a relative dry spell, I have a couple of purchases. The one above and this one. It came up in today's auction at Davissons. Much like most of the recent auctions, the prices seemed pretty strong today. I think the only reason I was able to win this one was because of what the auction house described as a flan flaw at 11 o'clock. It didn't matter to me. I couldn't have afforded a perfect one.

    Pictures and descriptions are from the auction house.


    GERMAN STATES. Teutonic Order. Maximilian of Austria. 1588-1618. AR double thaler. Hall mint. 1614. Master of the Order standing, holding the hilt of a grounded sword in his right hand, a lion holding a shield to left / Maximilian on a horse moving right, a circle of shields of arms around him. Dav. 5854. KM 30. Near Extremely Fine; light wear on highest points, lightly toned, flan flaw at 11' obverse; pleasing surfaces and overall a fresh and pleasing coin.

    Obverse: Grand Master of the Order standing with sword, date in exergue
    Reverse: Maximilian mounted on horse surrounded by circle of shields of arms

    Ruler: Maximilian
    Note: Dav. #A5854

    Composition: Silver
    Weight: 56.75g
    Diameter: 46mm

    Yeah really. This one really spoke to me despite the flaw. To me, that is just part of its story. I will (im)patiently awaiting its arrival.

    I got this recently to go with my 1970’s 50 Francs with the same design. 77388D4A-9C88-4A8C-8A19-74A167F55993.jpeg 22B9A36F-66B1-437D-848F-44D234F887A2.jpeg
