I've always avoided one of them. Keep figuring my wife would have something she wants done that I'm avoiding, she'll write it down on a piece of paper, place it on the table with that on top!!!!! lol. :bhyper:

This is my current oldest; it was identified as ca. 1595, but the features seem more consistent with an earlier issue, possibly 1571. Either way, it's the Grand Old Dame of my collection for now.

This was the Roman Empire's equivalent of the Lincoln cent - by far one of the largest minted bronze coins types.

 

They were struck from around 350 AD to about 361 AD (give or take on each end - I don't remember exactly)

Almost all of my coins date between 1750 - 1950, but here is a Henry V Groat a bit earler than that.

Make me an interesting trade offer and it's yours.
