    Some silver rupees came during the past week or so, both new type and older type. Weights range from 10.78 to 11.66 grams.

    Malta, Order of St. John silver Proof Zecchino 1965 PR68 Ultra Cameo.

    Picked this up on the cheap recently. It commemorates a very significant battle - over the course of an almost 4-month siege in 1665, the massively outnumbered Order of Knights of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem in Malta held off the full might of the Ottoman empire, possibly saving Italy (and Europe) from a subsequent invasion by the Muslims.

    Or, if you prefer books, this is an excellent read: "Empires of the Sea: The Siege of Malta, the Battle of Lepanto, and the Contest for the Center of the World" by Roger Crowley.

    Someone's got to be the pedant...judging by the chelae this is a representation of Pandinus imperator. They don't live in Bir Tawil, they're a rainforest scorpion.

    Or, in some cases, entire denominations. The postwar 1 lira and 2 lire were only made for a few years. While not particularly rare, they aren't seen anywhere near as often as the higher denominations. I got my first 2 lire today as part of a larger lot of high-grade French and Italian aluminum.

    Thanks. I would assume it was from an old European collection and was kept in a cabinet for a very long time to acquire this type of toning. The catalog referred to it as highly lustrous and "bathed in merlot and iridescent coloration". Definitely a look I really appreciate on these larger silver crown types.

    Essentially this is the same type as the earlier Mária Terézia taller issued (1767-1780), except for the name of the ruler. I would say this is my favorite taller type. After 1785 it was redesigned and started looking more "modern", but in my opinion it definitely lost some appeal with the simplification of the design.

    My most recent acquisition was courtesy of a trade with a fellow member of this forum on Numista. Regardless, I'll probably end up reholdering it sometime relatively soon.

    I picked up this large (38 mm) notgeld type thing from Belgium under German occupation. The reverse says that this coin from 1917 is reimbursable in 1920? Not sure what the story is behind that. The toning comes from bronze gilding that is has worn off the coin, pretty color. Sellers pics.

    Not a new coin but a new light. An LED 600 lumen, 5176k with 85.6 CRI, whatever that means. What I see is that my camera is able to focus better, easier, and the coin color seems more closely that of the coin in hand. This one is the same coin as a few posts above. Polish_20210201_191349960.jpg
    If I crop too closely it seems to lose some resolution when enlarged...

    Some more cheap but annoying to find pre-euro aluminum:

    I already had this date, but my example was maybe F at best, so this is a nice upgrade:

    And one of my goals for this year was to get a few graded French coins. Bought this one from a friend:

    I think the world market has not yet appreciated how scarce some of that pre-euro aluminum coinage is, especially the condition rarities. Very nice pieces.
