  1. OOh. I've got a similar one. Why where they pierced at the top?
  2. Thanks for all the info. I guess that seated liberty dime came off a bracelet (all my small silver coins have similar holes). I was supposed to be 'de-cluttering' my house and getting rid of stuff, but now I've got interested, so I'm going to keep the coins. Oh dear. Will have to try hard not to start collecting.
  3. Steve It's very interesting! Dimes: http://www.flickr.com/photos/49314257@N03/5591718224/ (pity about the hole) http://www.flickr.com/photos/49314257@N03/5591719656/in/set-72157626434034520/ I'm guessing the older ones have some silver content. Really should read some US history. If I looked at a British coin dated 1858 I would know what was happening at the time, which is part of the interest ie taking me back to that place in history. Having fun attaching bits of history to various foreign coins. My daughter did a little research and told me who the various presidents wh
  4. That was supposed to be a quote from Steve (above) but I couldn't figure out how to do it properly
  5. http://www.flickr.com/photos/49314257@N03/5591717898/ Hoping one of you kind people can tell me something about this roman(?) coin. Thanks.
  6. Steve Is this what you mean by a 'wheatear'? http://www.flickr.com/photos/49314257@N03/5591718482/in/set-72157626420284102
  7. Michael, I know nothing about counter stamping! What is it for? Steve, Thanks for that info, very interesting. I will print it out for my daughter to look at sometime. (She's engrossed in GCSE revision at the moment, I fear if I give her any more info her head will explode.) We've got a silver quarter dollar and one that's later. They feel and look quite different. Nothing very old though. Will have another look at them see if there are any wheatears. Thanks Julie
  8. Thank you both. My hunch was Roman. I have a much nicer Roman coin, will post it later. (Hope it's real!)
  9. http://www.flickr.com/photos/49314257@N03/5584927738/ I've no idea what this is, afraid it is terribly worn, so may not be possible to tell. Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi Steve Thinking of modern English pennies. Not at all familiar with modern American money! I just gave my daughter a pile of US coins. Mostly cents and dimes from the 60's. I'm guessing those aren't current! Going away to look that up now.
  11. Hi Bill Was thinking of displaying Egyptian coins along with my Grandad's photos of Egypt and other things he bought home. I'm more interested in history than coins, so not really bothered about value. I would like to identify them all so I can find out more. Got very interested in the history attached to the Edward I jetton, hadn't realised that mathematics was so modern. Think I'd have been happier using jettons to help me reckon!
  12. That's interesting! I've been blaming my Grandad for holes in coins, as he undoubtably did it to some pennies as my Granny had one on a key ring. Now I see the silver ones where probably on a bracelet. Anyway, your bracelet is fab. Personally I'd just wear it! Perhaps I should do that with my holey coins (after the application of a little polish perhaps) http://www.flickr.com/photos/49314257@N03/5581175183/
