    Went to my very first coin show this morning and picked these up. Not much, just wanted to get my feet wet. 736DF3FB-DCDD-4058-BF87-E6B9B0BA837A.jpeg 3CE012A2-BB3A-4654-89A4-24E099F4B07E.jpeg

    Sharp eye. I tried to ID that Roman and gave up. Is that an AR denarius?

    You must be the guy who keeps outbidding me on ebay.

    Received my first VOC Duit in the mail today. What an inexpensive way to own a cool piece of history! 1ABFEF2C-0C5B-49E3-A7E3-001AE754ADDF.jpeg 5ADD9140-322C-4105-86D4-32F6EC100FE7.jpeg 1234E50F-C271-4778-AAF0-8C16351243E1.jpeg

    Not exactly a new acquisition...quite the opposite, actually. I sold this coin in March of 2020 thru eBay to a guy in Israel. The shipment got lost, tracking said it was delivered, buyer claimed he never got it, a refund request was issued and accepted. Long story short...too late for that...I was out a $200+ coin.
    Then, yesterday, who shows up in the mail? The coin, returned from Israel as undeliverable. Only took 14 months and a pandemic to see it home. I had totally forgotten about it. It’s a key date with only about 200,000 minted. Anyway, here it is: 990B75BC-F6C2-4A9D-97A6-9FA6D2F50785.jpeg

    I have a 1940 100 mils, of a much higher mintage, did not know it was anywhere near that valuable.

    That's amazing!

    Always cool seeing stuff like this abroad, don't see too many people with these for some reason.

    Still need a nice West-Friesland myself, my current one is what you would call "pretty shit"

    A couple loose copper pickups from today:
    Tunisia, 1946 = 1365 AH, 5 Francs, Muhammed VIII (Single-year type)
    Prussia, 3 Pfenninge, from the year of German unification, 1871 (C=Frankfurt).
    I'm pretty happy with the condition of this one.

    Some better photos of the coin I posted yesterday. Hopefully these do it more justice. B74A4C0A-FDC6-4184-A950-BBA3BA4908FB.jpeg 724153AF-9059-428E-A2B0-9FB2D8447C2E.jpeg

    I am curious why it apparently says "4 S", as I recall the denomination being 4 escudos. Some Spanish way of saying escudo? 'scudo?
