  1. I'm pretty late in the game (more precise, 10 years), but my attention was drawn to the 2 krónur coin today, just 30 minutes ago. The runic inscription reads: Alþingi stofnaþ niu hundruþ ok þriatiu = Althing was established in 930 And below in says: Nitian hundruþ ok þriatiu = 1930 Again, sorry I'm late. 😊
  2. It's without a doubt Italian. "cinquanta" is Italian for "fifty", "Milano" is a city in Italy (eng: Milan), "lire" was the currency of Italy before the euro. And just the fact that the word "italiana" is clrealy written on it should remove all doubt.
  3. Sorry for asking, but what would Tonga be if not a country?
  4. I've just visited the "Banknte Grading" page, and it was pretty good. The best would, of course, be if there were pictures as well, so one can compare ones own banknotes with the pictures. Of course the ultimate would be to have the same note (like the lowest denomination of your country, or the cheapest banknote to purchase) so it wouldn't bee too confusing for the beginners. In general the site seems to lack pictures, but it's nicely done and easy to navigate.
  5. I dno't want to be a pain in the a$$, but it's actually Kuponi (at least that what it says on the banknotes). Probably this was a currency they used while they recently broke free from the USSR and before they got their own Lari (like Moldova and their Cupon etc..). Anyway, Gerogian banknotes (and coins) are easy to identify by the scipt. It's curved and nice and it always has the country name on them, written as საქართველო (saqarTvelo = Georgia), and the value (TeTri or lari (or in this case kuponi, which writes თეთრი, ლარი & კუპონი). Nice notes btw!
  6. The files are about 370 kB..so I guess it should be okay since the limit is 1 MB?
  7. When I'm trying to upload obverse and reverse pictures on OmniCoin nothing happens. The link to the obverse picture is just disappearing and then nothing more happens. Then it just says that an obverse or reverse picture is missing. What's the problem?
  8. Thank you very much for your help Moneymaker!
  9. I've seen a few 1595 3 Groschen coins, but this one looks different. Should the date on top be there? Or are the other ones - without a date on top, fake? Please help me out here! If authentic, what's its worth? Thanks! (obverse)
  10. Alright, cheers Bobh! I weighed them again and got 7 vs. 12 grams. can't get any more specific than that on the scale I used, and the result varies by about 1gram. The half dollar is about 30-30.5cm (I do it by hand so I can't be more exact than that) and the quarter is about 23-23.5, hard to see though due to the light. I will try to get better pictures tomorrow and post them so you can see better.
  11. Ohhhhw, I never win contests like these.... But post no. 30 must give mem something right?
  12. Here's some info about the coins: ¼ Dala: Weight: 6 grams, Diameter: 23 cm ½ Dala: Weight: 13 grams, Diameter: 30 cm Both edges are reeded.
  13. Hi! I am trying to figure out if these two Hawaiian coins are authentic or not. I tried to get an answer from the CoinCommunity but without success. Here's the coins: Cheers!
