  1. Hi all,, I have acquired a Dutch East India VOC coin dated 1747 and being a token collector, this is not my area of expertise. I can find loads of images on the internet with a castle or a flower above the VOC letters BUT mine has a bird above them, like a cockerel or something. Is mine slightly rarer and does it have any significant value? Please help, Thank you, Simon.
  2. Hi everyone, Need a bit of help in positively identifying this token I recently won on a well known auction site. On one side is the wording KORN HAUS BERN around the coat of arms of Bern, Switzerland, whilst the reverse appears to be a stylized ''1'' and the letters MAS underneath. Assuming this is the Corn Market built in 1711 to 1715, does anyone know what this token is. Is it a form of tally or a trade token? Is it rare at all?
