dug out some more of my french coins and decided to post relevant dates as well as move us forward a year

 

1605 quarter ecu, Saint-Lo mint

1604 1/8th ecu, Rennes mint. Significant die chatter on reverse

1603 quarter ecu `Dauphine', with a rather large cut taken from the flan. Too professionally done to be considered normal coin butchery. Probably doe for use in one of the French colonies, Any data on this one would be appreciated.

1602 huitieme d'ecu `de Navarre' (1/8th ecu). Worn but still a worthy collectable.

BUT...

Elizabeth I Penny of Ireland. Copper issue, m.m. star dated 1601. I understand this to be a very rare issue too.

1601 French jeton (Henri IV): Hoc Foedere Lilia Florent "With this alliance, the lilies bloom." Not sure which alliance it refers to, but a very common motto which will appear on many future jetons. Subducendis Rationibus = for the settling of accounts.

That jeton type is quite hard to come by for that particular date. Nice one!

 

The Irish penny however (while not exactly a pretty thing.....although beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder) is definitely in my `more than bloody difficult to find' category.

 

Again, nice one!....so who's going to post the 1600 dated coin then?

"(while not exactly a pretty thing.....although beauty is indeed in the eyes of the beholder)" - Many of my coins support that... :ninja:

 

Good to hear that it is deemed rare, I'm not a big fan of it, it just sits amongst the English stuff looking sorry for itself and out of place.

OK. Don't say I didn't give you guys a chance...... :ninja:

 

Here's a 1600 in the form of a damaged silver 3 groschen of Sigismund III of Poland. Nice collectable portrait coin
