  1. I don't have the right documentation to check it, but I think this might be a Salzburg coin
  2. The first coin is a 1/2 dhofari rial 1367 (about 1948). In Krause this coin is listed as KM#29. KM says it is struck for the dhofar region. It should weigh 14.0300 gram and contains 0.5000 silver 0.2256 oz ASW. Ruler Sa'id bin Taimur. There were 200,000 coins minted, prices F: 12,00, VF 14,00, XF 18,00 and UNC 28,00 The second coin is a Saidi Rial 1378 (about (1958/59). There are two varieties of this coin KM#31 28.0700 gr, .8330 silver .7518 oz ASW. Ruler Sa'id bin Taimur. Mintage: 1,000,000. in VF 12,50, XF 16,00 and in UNC 20,00 and KM#31a 28.0700 gr, .5000 silver .4512 oz ASW. mintag
  3. I collect all kind of coins and not specifically crown coins. The crown coins I find the most interesting are the silver crownsized coins like: 5 pesetas Spain late 19th century Belgian and French 5 francs 19th century Dutch 2 1/2 gulden 19th century untill the 1940's British Crowns and then especially the 19th century St. George slaying the dragon types German talers or German Empire 3 and 5 mark coins US silver dollars (Morgan, Peace) Italian 5 lire Vittorio Emanuele II Turkish 5 and 6 piastres 19th century and so on, and so on.
  4. Does anyone have more information on British and Irish bronze coins that seem to have been in some kind of nickel bath? I have several 1 penny and 2 pence coins that are treated this way. best regards, Peter Paul
  5. for more info you can look at this site http://www.duiten.nl/luiktot1612.htm and look up LUI.47: Liard (koper)(de Chestret 571 - Dengis 994) Altough it's in dutch, I think you can understand the info Best Regards, Peter Paul
  6. a nice cin design based on antique coins. This is 1968 however in stead of 1960. Best Regards, Peter Paul
  7. Dear fellow collectors, I have troubles determining this Gujarat coin. Who can help? Peter Paul
  8. Who has any info on this Safavid coin? Best Regards, Peter Paul
  9. I have several Mauryan punchmarks in my collection. I am very doubtful about there authenticity. I have enclosed some examples. Who can help me out? Unfortunately I have not been able to weigh them. Best Regards, Peter Paul
  10. Thanks again, Vincent. This is helping me a lot! I do not have more Mamluk coins to determine, but could you also help me out with a few Umayyad falus coins? Best Regards, Peter Paul
  11. Would you identify this as a mamluk coin as well, Vincent? I am not sure about the mintplace but guess it is a Hasan dirham from around 1350. Best Regards, Peter Paul
  12. Thanks a lot for this information! Best regards, Peter Paul
  13. 1 penning Floris V (1256-1296), count of Holland not the best of qualities, but I am still very happy that I bought this coin about ten years ago. Peter Paul
  14. One my rarer coins: Finland 10 penniƤ 1898 40,000 minted. Best regards, Peter Paul
  15. Who has more information about this coin? Best regards, Peter Paul
  16. I recently bought a Brazilian 20 reis counterstamp coin. Besides the "20" counterstamp there's also a counterstamp of a heart or Persian 5. Is there someone on this forum who could provide me with more information about this second counterstamp? I really don't have a clue where to look. best regards, Peter Paul
  17. Near the market are some shops too that sell coins and stamps. One of them is this one: http://www.theopeters.com/ It's been quite a while since I was in Amsterdam the last time so I can't give you any real tips as where to buy best. Enjoy your stay! Peter Paul
  18. If you stop buying the commemoratives now, that still means you can try to obtain a complete commem set untill now. I think that is already an achievement. Personally I still miss the 100 markkaa Schjerfbeck and Kivi (if we forget the gold 1000 and 2000 markkaa modern coins.) I never really started to collect the euro commemoratives. It is a bit of a shame that they started issueing that many coins. The regular issueing of 1 or 2 100 markkaa coins was far less expensive to keep up with. I stopped buying from the Dutch mint a few years ago. I still buy the silver 5 and 10 Eurocoins but ex
  19. Thanks for the replies on my question! It helps to confirm the ideas I already had on this subject. Unfortunately Krause doesn't mention any mintage figures of these particular coins so I couldn't be sure. Peter Paul
  20. Dear Fellow Collectors, In recent years I've asked a few people who had the possibility to get Soviet coins to look for specific years for me. None of them ever wrote me they found these specific coins. Can anyone tell me if these coins are really available or very scarce? Do they exist at all? Best regards, Peter Paul 5 kopek 1965, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72 10 kopek 1965, 66, 67, 68 15 kopek 1965, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75 20 kopek 1965, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 91 50 kopek 1967, 71, 75, 76, 90 1 roebel (non commemorative) 1961, 65, 66, 67,
  21. As a variety on the topic "how far back we could all go", I just checked my own collection to see how far I could go back before I missed a coin of a specific year. I found out that I could go back till 1709. The first year I miss is 1708. (then I miss 1701, 1693, 1688, 1669, and ofcourse many more) How far could you all go back in your collections? best regards, Peter Paul de Jong
  22. sorry was too late, as I posted it we were already 4 years back.....
  23. I knew there had to be a sound explanation for this. Thanks for your info! Peter Paul
