elverno;1809 20 Kreuzer, Tyrolean Insurrection;Group 5: 1801-1900

http://omnicoin.com/coins/898062.jpg

 

In 1805 the Austrians and Russians got their block handed to them by Napoleon at the Battle of Austerlitz. One of the results of the subsequent treaty was that Napoleon handed the Tyrol over to the Bavarians as a prize for being on the right side of the conflict. Unfortunately no one asked the staunch Catholic region if they wanted to be ruled by a Protestant country. As early as 1806 Andreas Hofer, a local innkeeper, had been in communication with the Austrians and when war broke out again in 1809 the Tyroleans raised an insurrection. In the difficult terrain the Bavarians were pushed back on all fronts and the insurrectionists took over the mint and produced, among other coins, this 20 kreutzer.

 

When the Austrians were defeated again in 1809 at Wagram the Tyroleans were left to their own devices. Napoleon sent French troops and, together with Bavarian and Württemberg troops the area was again subdued. "Hofer had to flee and hide; he was betrayed, arrested and carried off to Mantua (Italy), where he was executed on February 20th 1810." In 1810 the Tyrol itself was partitioned between Bavaria, the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy and France before being returned to Austria in 1815 by the Congress of Vienna. This is the nicest of three examples I own.

scottO - 1858 farthing - group 5

 

http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/962345.jpg

 

one of the best designs used on british coins, this 1858 farthing is quite a rare coin, although unlisted in most publications it gets overlooked and very few have been seen since it was first identified in 1972, hence why it was missed by publications, it was messed by peck and freeman, so is only really a known variety to farthing collectors, but it is estimated to be limited to a mintage between 500-1000.

elverno;1812 3 Pfennig, Reuss—Greitz;Group 5: 1801-1900

http://omnicoin.com/coins/898413.jpg

 

A nice coin with some wonderful toning, some of which I got in the shot. There is evidence of die failure as well.

The Smith Collection was one I acquired where the collector only picked up coins from 1812. I couldn't afford the gold however. :ninja:

The last hurrah! The very last of the lettered edge bust halves, to be replaced by the short lived reeded edge version before being replaced by the seated liberty design in 1839.

Sir Sisu - Haiti 1895 gourde - group 5

 

 

http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/978093.jpg

 

 

Silver crown. The tone on this coin is recent. (When I acquired the coin, there was an unnatural sheen to it which made me conclude it had undergone some type of cleaning. I let it sit on my bookshelf uncovered for over a year -flipping it over once- hoping that the sheen would dull down a bit and this is the final result.)
