How far back can you go in your own collection?


Recommended Posts

As a variety on the topic "how far back we could all go", I just checked my own collection to see how far I could go back before I missed a coin of a specific year. I found out that I could go back till 1709. The first year I miss is 1708. (then I miss 1701, 1693, 1688, 1669, and ofcourse many more)

 

How far could you all go back in your collections?

 

best regards,

No clue, I am not nearly that organized. But I would guess sometime in the mid to early 1800's.

1939 for me and my US collection, so boring, I know. No 1938's in my foreign collection, either, but it's just a side thing for me.

...can go back to 1793( I focused on getting every year of 1 cent pieces starting 1793 to current date)....earlier than that it gets sketchy....

 

...I think I have 1788, 1787, 1786, 1785, 1783, 1773,1760, 1756,1757, 1746,1733......

 

...have a couple "OLD" dated coins: 1677, 1644, 1559, 1557, 1509, 1480.....hoping our "how far back can you go?" thread goes back that far!!!!

I have a few ancients from 100 BC and I only wish I could go back that far through every year!

 

For more modern issues I can go back about 50s. Boring I know but I do more type collecting so I don't have many succesive year series.

 

Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns,

Odd. I thought people that collected really old coins would know that:

BC is normally indicated prior to the date

BC is always capitalized

BC never appears on a coin ;)

AD is also capitalized and always follows the date.

AD also never appears on a coin :ninja:

Odd thing is when you look up BC/AD you get many different opinions. Some say there is a 33 to 37 year gap in the system. Imagine having a coin made during that missing period of time. What would it be called?

As for my collection I have absolutely no idea of oldest or even how many of anything.
