Recommended Posts

Welcome to PCI2011. Please enter your Base Metal (nickel, copper-nickel, aluminum, etc) materials in this thread.

 

OK....Here we go.

 

There are threads in PCI2010 for each of the seven materials trees. Within these threads please post your entries for each group labelled for that group. Remember you can enter three coins for each group within each material tree. Entries in the format below are greatly appreciated.

This will be posted in my one post in the Copper Materials Tree thread. If I decide to change coins are add coins, I do it by editing the single post that I have made.

 

Thanks and best of luck to all of you.

Pending further additions, these are the ones that I know for sure I want to enter; I am going to try to get better images of some of these before the deadline.

 

 

ikaros, Base Metal, 1801-1900, 1883 nickel, United States: ikaros 1883 US Liberty nickel 'no cents'

 

 

ikaros, Base Metal, 1901-present, 1963 half crown, New Zealand: ikaros 1963 New Zealand half crown

 

ikaros, Base Metal, 1901-present, 1938 nickel, United States: ikaros 1938 US Jefferson nickel

 

ikaros, Base Metal, 1901-present, 1963 five cents, Netherlands Antilles: ikaros 1963 Netherlands Antilles 5 cents

 

 

ikaros, Base Metal, Exonumia, 1969 Man in Space series, Gemini VII: ikaros 1969 Glendenning Man In Space series: Gemini VII

Part of the Glendenning series on American spaceflight. Aluminium.

 

ikaros, Base Metal, Exonumia, 2006 Central States Numismatic Society convention token: ikaros 2006 CSNS convention token

Minted on-site at the convention by the Gallery Mint. Unknown composition; soft base metal.

 

ikaros, Base Metal, Exonumia, 2006 Central States Numismatic Society convention homage to ancient coinage: ikaros 2006 CSNS Homage to Ancient Coinage

Minted on-site at the convention by the Gallery Mint. Unknown composition; soft base metal.

 

 

I am entering two "special coins" on the basis of being issued by unrecognized governmental authorities (one seriously aspiring to legitimacy, the other rather less so):

 

ikaros, Base Metal, Special Coins, 2009 42 Solaris/π MUs, Aerican Empire: ikaros 2009 Aerican Empire 42 Solaris/π MUs

Minted 2009 for the micronation, The Aerican Empire. Total run was 100 coins. Composition is zinc alloy w/antique silver plate.

 

ikaros, Base Metal, Special Coins, 2006 10 Shillings, Somaliland: ikaros 2006 10 shillings

The issuing authority is de facto rather than de jure; the currency is not internationally recognized and does not have an official exchange rate, but it is reasonably stable and at least the paper currency is in use in the region. Composition is stainless steel.

Not sure on this one if it should be in this category. Since it was a circulating private issue coin. Or even the right metal group. If not I will delete and move it.

 

Mark Stilson, copper, nickel, zinc, tin, Group 7: Exonumia

Feuchtwanger composition one cent ht-268 (61) 1837 was the start of what is known as "The Hard Times" or "Panic of 1837" Lewis Feuchtwanger started minting his own coins due to a shortage of small change during this time. They actually were used as money during that time.

Knew this coin is going to stir something. :grin:

 

 

Don't get me wrong, I do like it. I'm always interested in the unusual, just has that extra pull in this case is that it also happens to be poisonous too, I wonder how many fell ill from Antimony poisoning using these things in everyday transactions? Very similar effects to Arsenic by all accounts.

Well if it's too late so be it. It seems we could use another one so Scotto doesn't have to compete against himself, but what do I know.

The main things I'm concerned for is George already set up the categories and did match up drawings. Kind of figure he's got enough on his plate. Next the main thing is it could open flood gates. Side note Scotto will be competing. He just gets a pass on the first round.

Mark is right. Been a little preoccupied out east lol. I have no locked these threads because 1) I need to update them and I don't know if I can when they are locked, even as the admin, and 2) because i do make copies of each of my brackets posts to use on the other threads.

 

Sorry you missed out this round of PCI, Jeff. I know you've got a lot of great coins that would do very well.

You can close the threads and still add/edit/whatever. Admin allows it.
