Interesting Finds in recent Bulk lot purchases

Recommended Posts

This one I believe is Korean but I am finding Krause very unwieldy when I try to date it

Japan 5 yen, early post-WWII. 1949 I think. The mystery piece is most likely a medallion or even a seal rather than numismatic in nature.

Yep you are correct - found it in Krause Y#71 - thanks for that CCQ.

It was the turkey/pigeon/dove or whatever it is on the coin that threw me.

 

And I suspect you may be correct about the "mystery coin" - my own view is that it is a token but let's see if anyone else has ever run into one in their numismatic travels
