  1. I have recently bought a lot of foreign coins, and among those coins there is an arabic one that i am trying to identify.


    I haven't bothered about it before, because it is so thin I haven't even thought it was a coin. But, successfully indentifying two other arabic coins made me think it could be a coin after all. The design is remarkably close to other coins, and it has a year. As far as I can see the year on this thing is AH 1223 and adding 621 to make AD gives 1844.


    Googling arabic gold coins have also given me pictures of coins that are near identical to my "coin".


    The coin is 18 mm in diameter and 0.44 mm thick. Haven't got scales to weigh it.


    Help is much appreciated!



  2. Thank you very much for the information about my token. That was interesting reading indeed.


    I've had a read about the NGC Coin grading process as well, to be able to compare my specimen with the one you linked to.


    I'dont think my token is that bad actually - qualitywise - and now it's "scarce" as well :-)



  3. I I recently bougt a lot of old coins by the kilo, and in among those coins i found a Pidcock token. Have just researched abit on it on the web, but havent found much material on it. An article updated 2007 mentions that noone knows what function the coin had when made. Is that still the case?


    My coins looks to be in decent shape, but I wouldnt know how to appraise a token! Is my token i decent shape? (pics attached)

    Any information is appreciated.
