Hi,

please have a good look at the images, if you can help me to the proper reference numbers on those 4 coins, I'll be a happier man!

Thanks in advance

All are Poland KM 110, solidus in the name of Jan II Kazimierz Waza (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_II_Casimir_Vasa). The dies were hand engraved, so will find many differences between dies.

obv: portrait looking right IOAN   CAS REX - John Casimir king
rev: spread eagle (Poland) with breast shield sheaf of corn (Wasa) POL [date] SOLID REG - of Poland royal shilling.

There exists an online catalogue of these coins. I fully recommend it!

Try this link (https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=pl&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fblognumizmatyczny.pl%2F2016%2F11%2F14%2Fboratynki-wszystkie-mennice-i-wszystkie-roczniki%2F) for an English version. It is still useful to know that a boratynka is a shilling (szelÄ…g) minted by the colourful mint master Titus Livius Burattini. ;)
