  1. Here's a link to a probable model for the triskeles. But yours definitely don't have the style of anything real. Also, in Greece you'd need an export certificate to take anything out of the country and the prices there are much higher than the open market for those shops that do deal in real coins

  2. Watch out for the monsters you might create. I say that because my 8 year old has been collecting since she was just shy of 2 - largely by "appropriating" stuff she wants from my clutches. Now she is a roll searcher and trusty helper. Last week she found a dateless T1 Buffalo - her oldest Buff find. She keeps her finds and doesn't even discuss compensating me for them. Out of all my kids, with the exception of one of them, she is the only one that has stuck with collecting/hoarding.


    My two sons just totaled up their discounted value of all the world coins they've sorted, identified, stapled, and stored. I'm lucky that they want some money back out, that'll let me recoup the costs and they can keep the rest as the fruits of their labor ;)


    I think my oldest likes do to things I do, my middle one is a natural collector, my daugher I really don't know yet. It certainly is better than another hour of games or TV though. I haven't tried roll searching on them yet. Have you trained your daughter to spy high grade MS coins to send in to PCGS and flip for a profit? Young eyes might be good for that.

  3. Me too. What does the medal represent?


    The building is the Seewarte in Hamburg which existed 1875-1945 and was the center to study marine meteorology as well as a caduceus. The seated figure sits atop various marine implements with a ship to one side and a storm to the other in the background. She is writing something presumably a sea chart or meteorological data. I'd guess she's a representation on meteorology.
