I hope this is not all. I would love to add some off my coins. I know we can go back farther than this.

1860

 

1860.jpg

 

 

A coin from the reign of Abdülmecid. His reign started on July 2nd 1839 (1255 in the Islamic calendar). This coin is from his 21st year as sultan. 1839+21 = 1860.

 

The coin is worth 40 Para and was minted in Kostantiniyye (now Istanbul. You can see the two b like letters on the right of the 40. Those are the two "t"s of Kostantiniyye).

Belgium - 10 Centimes 1862 - Full Brockage (and circulated for a long time! It makes you wonder...)

 

I figure back in that era, 10 centimes is worth a good deal more than now. And with coin errors not being exciting or at premiums, it'd be better to spend it than to save it.

1856, I waited for the flying eagle, but nobody posted, so now I get to post a bunch. :ninja:
