Title: Egyptian token, Psaradoli
Post by: Figleaf on August 02, 2008, 02:03:02 PM
Brass token, 21,9 mm. Base piece looks like a French or German interbellum generic token with the figure 20 on one side, the other side is blank. Stamped on the value side a Greek K and PS. On the blank side another Greek PS. All counterstamps left smooth spots on the other side.

According to the seller, the token below is a 20 para piece issued in Egypt for one Costas Psaradoli. I have no other information. Can anyone confirm or does anyone have a catalogue number?

Peter,

I never saw this piece, but it is an interesting puzzle. I asked a friendly collector from South Africa with Greek roots about this item. Let us hope for his reply.

Cheers

Interesting piece that is and the letters are greek (psi & kapa) but as to where it comes from i have no idea. Keep well
Thanasi

Peter,

as you can read, the token remains still unidentified.

Right now I do not have any idea how to proceed.

My friend told me that this forum is very interesting, but at present there is a gap of time to join. Maybe later? Hopefully!

I'll just continue to take the seller's word for it. Thanks for trying.
