  1. Finally I bought the coin. And still have no clue what it is. The crown is similar to that on swedish coins.
  2. I found this coin for sale in a weird lot, mostly modern coins around it. Anybody has any idea what it is? Thanks.
  3. Just got these. Used to be beautiful coins in someone's collection I am sure. Then the person died and it seems the municipality uses ignorants to clean these apartments and recycle unclaimed goods. The ignorant worker used a file and battery acid to test is the coins were of precious metal. Unbelievably ignorant! Seems he sold most of them to a pond shop. My question now: how do I clean the stains (I already tried bakeing soda)? Some are silver some nickel, our "hero" burned them all.
  4. I recently bought quite a few silver 20 kreuzer coins, both the Austrian and the Hungarian version. Some are in very very very good shape (with the mint luster), some are worn. Years from 1790 through 1846. Weight between 6.3 and 6.6 grams. https://imageshack.us/my/images
  5. I would like to believe that, but 2 grams is way too much. If this was a 1648 thaler, sure, no problem... Will hang on to it and compare it with other 5 lire from that period at the next coin show.
  6. I bought this coin last year, online. All seemed ok until I noticed it has a rare mint mark - the Rome mint version. But now that I weighted - the coin is about 23 grams... and the edge letters are very shallow. Suppose it is fake. What do you coinpeople say?
  7. Looks good to me. I had a similar one. Silver is kinda soft, it gets scratched easily... Should be about 25 grams.
  8. I am thinking about selling some roubles 1815, 1829, 1842, 1849, 1867, 1872, 1877 and 1878, poltina: 1816, 1851, 1877 and 25 kopeks 1827, 1829, 1833, 1835, 1838, 1853, 1858, 1859, 1877, some of them in excelent condition. I already posted some pictures with the 1842 rouble here on this forum, asking about the die defect on the reverse. Did not get any replies though. I will post some more pictures tomorrow if I have time, but I really prefer to sell them to people that can come and see them here in Bucharest, I do not like the idea of shipping the coins... or maybe I will list them on ebay..
  9. Thank you for the input. I love these talers and this was a bargain, got if for 50$. So even though it is common, I like it.
  10. Weight - 28,5 grams, the obverse is almost worn out completly... the reverse is ok but looks like it is made of brass with a silver coating. The weight and aspect of the coins seem ok to me, what do you think about the coin authenticity? http://omnicoin.com/viewcoin/1021205
  11. The reverse picture is too small to see anything, but other then the weight of the coin I see nothing wrong. Guess you double-checked the weight.
  12. Hello there. For pictures with medieval coins you can check out the virtual coin museum section.
  13. Thalers were supposed to weight 28 or 30 grams so I doubt it is silver.
  14. My first scyphate coin, byzantine, pretty warn out.
