Wooooow!! I want old coins like that too!! :drool: Amazing!! I had no idea that people had coins from the first half of the 14th centuary :shock:

I though that I would be able to add my 1752 coin, but I guess that task was way too easy for you guys :hysterical:


Just curious, how can you tell that a coin from 1555 is real or a fake? (I'm mean, unless it says "replica" ofc)?
