How Far Back Can We Go??


Recommended Posts

I think 1514 is a date thrown around as the first dated coin

 

 

But which calender? The coin I posted a link to is dated just a different way of tracking the date. For those who haven't looked back thru the entire post for awhile I suggest doing it. I just did and it was neat. (BTW we thought we were getting stuck big time during the 1700's. Now we are almost to the 1500's. :ninja: )

Right, I recognize that 1514 is specific to a certain calendar system, I just couldn't name it - Gregorian or Cesarian or Julian or something. Certainly not the Muslim or Hebrew calendar system!

Going over ebay spotted some of the dated coins may only have the last 2 numbers. I guess that should still count unless we are sticklers it is still dated.

 

You know once we make the 1609 point that will be 400 years of coins. Took us 2 years but a wild accomplishment.

Here is a 1609 at last. Spanish Netherlands, Albert & Elizabeth, I think from Tournai. 1 Liard. I don't know why it won't display larger. Do I have to post it somewhere else and link the URL to get a bigger image?

Why stop here...Lets go 500! C'mon guys, we can do it! :ninja:

 

 

I hope we can. Being the optimist I even picked up a 1569 and 1584 to help the cause along when we get there.

^^^ Thanks, Mark. I love the soldier's extravagant mustache. :ninja:

 

Fantastic condition, best facial details I have ever seen on a daalder.

 

And yes, that mustache is quite manly... ;)
