  1. Any collector who loves coins of 2 euros maybe knows the fame that exists around the greek 2 euros witch represent an ancient scene of the rapture of europe From zeus who is transformated into a Bull. The year of 2002 the cutting of the one part of these coins took place in Athens and the orher part in Finland.The coin that were cut in Finland had above one of the stars the english letter of (S). Some collectors found that these coins had a bunch of small mistakes in some other more metal in the chest of europe the fenomenon that Is called (bikini), and in some other small alterations in the face and also in some other seemed to have fault in centering of the number (2). .For all these reasons we saw these coins to be sold in all kind of prices and sometimes very high.In that way we had the curiosity to make a reseach of these coins that were cut in Finland. Through 3 years we investigated with every detail up to 10.000 pieces of this type of coins here in Greece. We found out enough of the mistakes that we have already mentioned and through all these 10.000 pieces there was (one and only) witch stood out from the rest because there were a lot of mistakes in one piece of coin. Here we will show you some photographies of the mistaken coin itself. The mistakes that we found out in this coin was .1)The centering of the one side of the coin with the picture of europe and Zeus clearly seems to be moved to the left side. 2) The angle of number 2 is completely disappeared. 3) The face of europe is also completely disappeared. 4) The word (EUROPE) has moved from the right side starting from the word (E). 5) There Is more metal in the chest of europe also known as "the bikini fenomenon". Furthermore there Is a small lesion in the clothe of europe. oldvaluestuf@gmail.com
  2. Hello to all members 1862 VICTORIA D.G. BRITT: REG: F:D: ONE CENT coin This coin belonged to my grandfather's collection ... It was gifted to him by a collector friend in Germany years ago ... now it belongs to my own collection .... oldvaluestuf@gmail.com
  3. the most famous and remarkable gold coins of the Ottoman Empire are those of the km # 638 series. 1HAYRIYE ALTIN these coins were used for commercial transactions as well as for jewelery. at the time of his kingdom MAHMUD II (1828 - 1833) it had given a relative liberty to the subordinate peoples to have in their possession such gold coins. at that time many poor people living in the countryside managed to get these coins by working hard they gathered them not to feel rich but more to endow their daughters. so when the time of the wedding arrived, they pierced these fine gold coins and made a golden necklace and splashed them on the neck of the bride and with these golden coins the new couple made their new house. This is the reason why most of these coins are pierced. many of these coins have disappeared since then and some have been rescued.and have remained very little because after the fall of the Ottoman empire and the creation of the new Turkish state, the Turks banned every transaction with these coins and after he had gleaned as much as he could have melted them. this law has been up to date. But there is something that the collectors of the Ottoman coins maybe not aware of is that among these golden Ottoman coins of that period some of them are really very rare. among those golden coins that left me as an inheritance my grandmother is that in the photo with date of cut 1223/23. The coins of this date are really difficult to find anyone who love these coins and is a fanatical collector of Ottoman coins There are also some variations in decorative flowers in relation to the other coins of this series and I believe that for all these reasons and for the history of these coins, the valuation of their collectible value must be very large. Thanks
