my new purchases


Recommended Posts

might as well make a thread, i'll start with last 2-3 days, and ebay links

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=300307453505 , saw this goin cheap, thought i'll have a pop, got it for a good price a Silver Denar Ferdinand I 1563, hard to get hammered so this is very nice

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=110376724225, 1766, VOC 1 Duit, lovely detailed coin, didn't want to pay so much for it (i account for postage costs when bidding, i only wanted to go up to £2.50)

However, the same person had

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=110376731647 - 2 kopecks 1841, bit knocked, still appealing to look at, and it helped pull postage costs down for the duit allowing mw that bid that won it also.

not that new, had these a few weeks, but when you buy a good few hundred coins at once it takes a while to get them uploaded, still more to go up but i got the best of them i think



http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=968766 - straits settlements 1/2 cent 1916, AVF, so better then average probably worth a few quid too


http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/968764.jpg - Australia 1962 6D, EF, seems to have a similar portrait to 1953 obverse 1 coins from UK


http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/968763.jpg - southen rhodesia 1939 3D EF grade... now then i have seen an example on a site in EF for sale at £65... mine isn't as good though (discolouration..). if it is worth around then that then i am very happy


http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=968670 - t 'ung Chih cash coin, VF as you know i have gathered a few chinese cash coins, this is one of the reigns i was missing from my Ch'ing Dynasty pieces. also a short reign period 1862-1875 so a bit harder to get an example


http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view_enlarge.aspx?id=968596 - spain 1993 25 pesetas.. not usualy something to get excited about... until you notices its UNC!!


http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view_enlarge.aspx?id=968595 - turkey 1969 25 kurus, EF, acctually a nice design decent grade and a possible doubling on 3 numbers in the date


http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=968588 - not usualy something i gun for, but a few bits of exonumia is always nice, from what i can see with minimal research this is a vietnam war 10 cent token from 1st mess division, perhaps something someone else can help me with


and now for the things i do like, the good old guinea token coins just the 3 here

http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=968583 dated 1790 and a brass colour (looks quite golden though) could be more of a forgery then a token, still interesting


http://www.omnicoin.com/coins/968582.jpg - 1790 token piece, darker coloured then the guinea, some nice touches like the doubling of the 9 and the remains of the previous engraving of the shield in places


http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=968538 - one of my faves, 1981 isreal telephone token, as it has a nice design and is nice piece of history


http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=968437 - nice toned belgium 50 centimes from 1973


http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=968827 portugal X centavo 1943 EF

found some Gems at the dealer yesterday

couple of ebay buys arrived..

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=280374913262 - Rose/orb' jeton of Hans Krauwinckel II, Nuremberg, Germany

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...em=320403188966 - and this :ninja:, 1935 penny with full lustre

1935 penny, full lustre not full brightness but still shines a dark orange

also went to get a couple of farthing valued.. and found out how i ended up with my small date 1858 for so cheap... the book the dealer has only has one listing under 1858... my 1840 was graded EF (at £20, dealer said 7 for 1858... which i'm guessing is for normal date... which doesnt help much...

and some nice buys


1754 farthing - poor, interesting piece, there looks to be a . after the 4 on the date, not . after REX either possible new type?


Australia - EF 1951 3D, full lustre

germany - 5 reichpfennig 1941 J VF

Holland - 10 cents 1937 - EF full lustre

sweeden - 10 Ore 1938 - EF bright


Belgium 1944 2 cent, EF lustrous, not bad for zinc plated steel to have lustre


1917 1 cent - Fine

1990 P dime, good off centre on obverse.


1806 Penny - st patrick token

1953 halfpenny EF no lustre but great details and still has a shine to it


1921 1 franc EF- full lustre, slighly faded but still there, a bargain at 10p

1947 10 francs - EF full liustre


1992 - F 25 cents, nova scotia Full lustre but some circulation signs

New Zeland

1947 - halfpenny VF, still good details on the hear so towards EF


1936 A - 1 reichpfennig VF

1922 J - 50 Pfennig EF,. some scratches but full lustre

1950 J - 10 pfennig EF, lustre still noticable in and around the legend, so quite nice.
