  1. The coin below appears to be of Nero. I am unable to attribute it fully. Possibly the dupondius RIC 519 but the "C" of 'SC' does not match as it is too far right and 'low'. The image does not reflect the true color in hand. The brown image in hand below is from Wildwinds and the green image below is from The Roman Coins Database. Both appear to exhibit the "c" high & left and are attributed as RIC 519. I have looked online for a closer match but come up short. Trust someone may be able to help. 13.08 gr. ~28mm' brass IMP NERO CAESAR AVG P MAX TR PPP SECVRITAS AV
  2. The 1943 S half dollar shown below in digital images appears to exhibit a mintmark of a heretofore unknown variety. The only known variety is the last image illustrated below as it appears on the CONECA Webesite. Any comments, opinions etc...always welcome. Apologies for the quality of the images...with my cheap Rube Goldberg setup, it is the best I am able to manage. Image 1 Image 2
  3. In the attachments please find a digital scan of the obverse and reverse of a coin from my collection. Trust the images are clear enough to be useful. The coin appears to be a Mexican 10 centavos of the Chihuahua Mint with the date 1887 over 3. The mintmark is CH and the mint-master is M. The eights of the date appear to be jammed together which might indicate a damaged die or might indicate that the coin itself was damaged or manipulated to create the effect. Weight 2.70 grams. Dia. 17mm. Tests @ high grade silver with 18 kt acid test on a basaltic stone. Would appear to be genuine

    Appears to be "machine doubling" sometimes called "shelf doubling". Usually double dies are more valuable.
  5. Many thanks for the reply. Your reference to Breton got me to thinking. I remembered purchasing a book of his many years ago. After searching for hours, I found it. It is titled, "Popular Illustrated Guide to Canadian Coins, Medals &. &." by P. N. Breton. It was published in Montreal in 1912. As you may see in the attachment, the Breton storecard is item # 169 on page 75 and appears to be identical to the LeRoux # 1517a as indicated above. It seems to me, that the medal that we have remained unknown to Breton as late as 1912. It seems likely that if he had known of it,
  6. Am a long time numismatist (40 years) and have published an article on Canadian Large Cent varieties in the February 1989 issue of the Numismatist (US publication). I have had this medal for more than 20 years but could not find out anything in regard to it except as indicated by its inscription. I decided to Google the item. I was lead to this site. My questions are: 1. Is this item listed or referred to in any Canadian reference work on medals, Exonumia etc? If so, kindly indicate via email such works. 2. Is the item common, scarce or rare? Trust my fellow numismatists may
