Solidus of John II Casimir of Poland
« on: February 05, 2015, 11:01:55 PM »
Hi,

I have this small copper coin, weight 1.14 grs, diameter 15.54 mm, thickness 0.88 mm, which I can NOT identify. I've been through the German States from 1701 to 1900, but I didn't find it. I've tried google with the letter I've found
Eagle side, clock wise starting by the head:  ?OLID??G??OLO
Portrait side, clock wise starting at top of head: G or C A ? . K E and the rest is not readable!

Any help will be highly appreciated.
