Ian Posted November 24, 2005 Report Share Posted November 24, 2005 The top one has (obverse) a portrait facing (looks like a hound dog), and what looks like "DEI . IUTITIA" (God and Justice?) in the obverse legend. The reverse legend reads "IMPERATOR" and I struggle to decipher the bit in the middle. It is silver, thin, and roughly the size of a UK penny. The botton one has (obverse) a portrait facing right with the legend IMP. FEDERICUS. The reverse has a type of city view (similar to coinage of Hamburg but not quite the same) with what looks to be the initials IGA on the left and MVM on the right. It is silver, thin, and roughly the same size of a US dime. I've had these two for years now and every now and again I try to identify them, so far without any luck. I am almost certain that they are German, but I don't have reference books for small denomination coinage of that era from that area. I could be well out though. The only thing I am positive about is that they are not French Any help would be appreciated. Ian Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
