Spending the holidays in Norway, I had hoped to pick up a few coins there--but without luck.

I return home to find these two coins for sale in my own city--at a fraction of what they would cost in Norway. :yahoo:

 

1780 Christian VII 2 Skilling

18mm, 1gr

 

1803 Christian VII 2 Skilling. A better grade, plus an interesting mintmark variety--compare to the pic below. I was told the engraver was nearly blind.

KurtS,

You might be interested to compare the mintmark on your coin with the one on the coin I sold on eBay a few weeks ago
