    HOW TO READ Islamic/ Arabic DATES

    I've found this useful when dealing with Arabic coins: http://worldcoingallery.com/Inst-ID/Arabic.htm From recollection, not all Umayyad coins are dated, though.

    Medieval Silver Coins

    I am pleased to announce that Historic Coinage's 2017 Winter List has been published and is now available here. The list features an eclectic mix of coins and tokens, from Anglo-Saxon stycas to Crusader silver to Plantagenet gold. Many of the coins form 'The Collection of a Professor', a quality selection of English silver & gold acquired in the 1940s and 1950s from Seaby, Baldwin & Spink. Most of these coins have not been on the market for 60+ years and several have eminent provenances attached to them, such as Lawrence, Grantley, Carlyon-Britton & Duke of Argyll. Please do reach out to me if I can be of any assistance whatsoever and I hope you enjoy browsing the latest list.

    Silver 1976 penny

    I suspect it's something done as a school experiment or similar. I see dozens of these each year where people use zinc sulphate to alter the colour of the coins. Here's an example: http://www.instructables.com/id/Turn-Copper-Pennies-into-Silver-and-Gold-Chemistr/

    YeOldeCollector's Olde Purchases

    I wonder if it's a cheaper version as it's a relay race, and so there would multiple recipients of 1st just as there would be of 2nd. It's still boxed in its original box so I assume it's still F. Phillips of Aldershot who seemed to do many school & army sports medals in the 1930s and 1940s. I'm guessing brass, but it does look much better in hand.

    ONE Florin 1871 - Georges III

    This is what is known as a pattern issue, it was essentially a trial piece used to test a design - this cannot have been legal tender due to the mismatch between the date and when George III was king. You can see similar examples here: http://www.londoncoins.co.uk/?page=Pastresults&searchterm=Florin+George+Iii+Pattern+Trial&category=9&searchtype=1

    UK penny 1928 penny no rim

    In my honest opinion, it looks to have been worked long after minting to give this appearance.

    Help me with identification please

    Which country was this found in? Looks like a metal detecting find of a button or stud mount.

    ID - English or danish

    Definitely not English. Looks to be a Scandinavian issue in imitative style of Aethelred II's English Longcross type. This is an English issue: Have a look at Brita Malmer's work as that will have it in if it's an official issue and not a Baltic/Scandinavian contemporary forgery/imitation.
