    Nice. I think one could make their whole numismatic field in those "small hammered European coins" of that sort. So, a "world" coin means it was minted here on Earth, right? Here is another Western Satraps, Vijayasena, AR Drachm, c. AD238-250. Partial date visible SE16x. Showed up yesterday, along with 5 other similar small hammered coins.

    From Max Brand at the PCGS Members Show here in Las Vegas last week. Not rare, not expensive, but a pretty nice example for the issue. These are abundantly available in almost-uncirculated, but hard enough to find in MS63 and above that they actually turn-up at auction.

    Different auction, two more coins filling uncomfortable gaps in my collection:
    1688 over 7 Shilling:

    (Interestingly this was mis-described in the auction as a sixpence!)

    1734 Crown:

    This is my only younger head George II crown so far.

    I thought this might be a Conder token from the barge loading scene, but it's British Historical Medal #495, "State of England" 41mm by G. 97074104ddd2d8ce67354e236f4da493183f72 2.jpg V.Bauert.

    Plus, with a mintage of 10,000 pieces (just for the regular issue) it's pretty sweet to even find one!

    It's been a slow couple of months for acquisitions. Here are the only 2 pieces of note.

    The Essequibo & Demarary pieces are just cool (to me). Apparently I just buy them when I see them. It's the 3rd (and best) one I have purchased.


    And this French medal:


    Sellers description:
    France, Council of Elders, 1798 Medal, UNC, Very unique oval Bronze medal commemorating The Directory, Council of Elders, Year VII (1798) Paris. Unsigned. Beam surmounted by the cap of Liberty, surrounded by two cornucopias, an olive branch, and an oak branch; above: a laurel wreath; in the epigraph: REPRESENTATIVE/ OF THE PEOPLE/ THE YEAR VII, R/COUNCIL OF ELDERS, In a circle formed by the snake biting its tail, the level and the tables of the Constitution inscribed CONSTITUTION/ DE/ AN THREE. 46x56mm 58.4g. The Council of Elders was a French legislative assembly which, together with the Council of Five Hundred, was established by the constitution of the year III, adopted by the Thermidorian Convention in August 1795 and implemented on September 23, 1795. It shared the power with the Executive Directory and contributed to the making of laws with the Council of Five Hundred. Fantastic silky chocolate brown surfaces.

    Although I don't collect French medals, I thought the "Mountain King" on the reverse of this medal was pretty cool. lf45-side.jpg
