    And some of the US stuff. I sold my Morgan and Peace dollars and presently do not own any of those except in my giveaway material.

    Perhaps another? Opposite side of the globe of course, and descent of Spanish conquest rather than English.

    A couple millimeters short of a crown.

  6. That is a lovely Zeeland ducat. The thin white ring around the coin, is it graded or just white background that remain from cropping the image? Kind of looks like the coin is in a PCGS slab.

    It's in a PCGS slab. That's the gasket that's not cropped out.

  9. I don't know about "hadta"; more like "wantedta". Hahaha. This particular coin has been on my wish list for quite a while. I wasn't really expecting to win to be honest... my bid was kind of a lowball.

    1638 Metz taler. Obv: St. Stephen Rev: Metz coat of arms. Amongst the final coinage of Metz before both city and bishopric lost minting rights in Peace of Westphalia at conclusion of Thirty Year War in 1648.

  11. Good to see you again wcg - has been a while. A very interesting taler - looks rather incredible for a coin that's pushing 400 years old :)

    A couple of new additions to my collection. The double rupie is especially a rather cool coin I've hunted for a good bit.

    Those are great. The Tuscany piastro especially. Love Cosimo’s ruffed collar, there. Imagine having to wear one of those silly things to be fashionable. And here I thought the modern necktie was absurd!

    I don't collect crowns specifically but I got a 1959 Bermuda crown recently - I didn't realise they they ever produced a crown, let alone two, but the 1964 is a little smaller than the expected 38mm.
