gxseries' bad taste of purchases

Recommended Posts

I guess this is a post where I show the new purchases that I bought this year. The reason why I put in bad taste is that I am fully intending to purchase problematic coins, but doesn't make that affordable? :lol:

 

Nevertheless, picture time! :ninja:

 

Russia 1826 2k with totally wrong mintmark and mintmaster:

Russia 1724 1 ruble, worn, hinged, etc:

Feel free to ask any questions if you wish to comment on any coins in omnicoin that I have. :cry:

I, too, like the 2k.  But I must ask, why is the mintmark and mintmaster wrong??  Is it a poorly executed forgery?

 

I am honestly confused as well. This is my first time coming across totally messed up legend and such errors should have stopped by the end of late 18th century.

 

I have placed a discussion about this in here: Link

 

The usual mintmark should be like this:

which is EM-ИК. What I have seems to suggest that it is EH-NK, which does not exist in any catalogue book!

 

On other hand, if this is a counterfeit coin, it might explain everything :ninja:

Just got myself a few world coins and updated my crappy photos for some of the coins.

And a mysterious Bukhara coin:

As well as, I have opened another account in omnicoin. This is an account that I am planning to sell coins or post what coins I have sold - I can't help buying and actually end up regretting buying them as they aren't related to what I am collecting :ninja: Actually, the coin store here ran out of decent Russian coins for me to hoard, and hence that. :lol: But, that means more excellent world coins for the rest of the forum members here :cry:

One filler in my collection that came in today:

 

909955.jpg

 

That coin came together with this, but I realized I have a spare and will offer it to anyone here. I can't just hoard everything :lol:

 

909976.jpg

 

I cannot be bothered with the poor grades these days... :cry:

 

As well as added some notes in banknotebank, although I got plenty more to add... I just need to research about the years since quite a fair bit of notes aren't printed with the issue years on them. :ninja:

A bunch of coins that I bought today from a major coin fair here that helds twice a year.

 

Story here: http://www.coinpeople.com/A-coin-fair-here...alia-t8631.html

 

Lot1 front

Lot1 back

 

Lot2 front

Lot2 back

 

I am probably going to sell almost the whole lot back since they were quite cheap and thought I could pass the savings to you all here. The ones that I am going to keep are probably the Russians, Polish and the 1819 German coin. I might consider a few others but you can start offering me via pm if there is a coin that you really want :ninja:

Yup, Mike's definately got all the Japanese coins - I promised him that I'll hunt down all the good Japanese coins deal.

 

Here's something I got this week:

 

910449.jpg

 

Sadagura 1773 2 para - 3 kopeks for Wallachia and Moldava. I find this particular coin hilarious related to it's history of dual denomination, as well as, who would in the right mind mint coins out of captured Turkish cannon metal. The edging of this copper coin is supposed to be QUITE pretty but it looks like I'll need to go after a VF or XF for that to be visible, which can go way too pricy.

 

I've uploaded the other coins that I got in the fair in omnicoin, as well as the other Soviet commemorative rubles that I got. I still have another odd 100+ Russian coins that are not photographed but that will have to come a few months later as I have them locked up very very far away... Until then, perhaps you don't need to waste any more drops of saliva on your keyboard. :ninja:

A coin that I got in the mail this week from CIVITAS Galleries, a great dealer that I got to know on CU. His homepage can be found at here: http://www.civitasgalleries.com/ :ninja:

 

While this particular coin is damaged, hinged, gilted etc, this is still a fairly difficult coin to find at a good price:

What is more interesting is with the edge inscription of this particular coin which could be found in this new topic that I just typed out:

More Russian coin lots

What is interesting is the denga coin and the 50 ruble coins - which I will illustrate in the Russian coin forum. And yes, this is my devil plan to get people to the specialized area :ninja:

As well as, I uploaded a few more Australian commemorative coins in circulation.

Came back from a fair and bought these coins:

 

http://www.coinpeople.com/index.php?showto...=0entry241371 Warning: pictures are fairly large!

 

Still amazing how many more Russian coins I can buy :ninja:

 

If you noticed, there is a Macau coin there. If you actually write my name out in traditional Chinese, that's how it is written! :lol:

 

915430.jpg

 

Now there are actually TWO serious error coins there - I'll let you figure what they are before I post the answers in the Russian coin forum :cry:

Not a lot of purchases, but here are MORE Russian coins.

 

Russia 1788 MM 5 kopeks over 1762 10 kopeks.

916064.jpg

These are getting amazingly difficult to find.

 

Another is a possibly specimen set from the Soviet Union:

Russia 1961 specimen mint set(?)

916086.jpg

All coins are from 1961.

 

And lastly, is a gift from Kuhli, (many thanks!)

Russia 1980 20 kopeks, DIE CLASH!

gxseries, I've been admiring your collection over on the OmniCoin site. I noticed your 1720-OK rouble, the one with the edge dated 1719. Did you know that another example with the wrong edge was auctioned in Dmitry Markov's N.Y. Sale last January? It might be in slightly better shape than yours, but it sold for $1,400! :ninja:

I SERIOUSLY thought you were joking about the 4 digits figure!!! :ninja: Auction XII, Lot 1100? No way! :cry:

 

But, there are some skeptisms with some dealers that I have shown here. Some say it's counterfeit, some says it's a genuine, so I have no idea what it is at the moment. I'll open a thread in the Russian coin forum.

Got myself two sets of this Korean set:

 

(Sorry - the scanner isn't too nice on me.) Nevertheless, Korean mintsets are QUITE scarce - try to find one on ebay and you will pay a heavy price for it.

 

All coins except the 1 and 5 won coins are minted in 1996 and the other two are 1983, since there aren't any minted since 1992. This is an official mintset by Hwadong, an official distributor of South Korean coins.

Going to sell one set in the forum soon. Stay tune if you are interested :ninja:
