Commemorative 2 euro coins / 10th Anniversary of the European Monetary Union
« Last post by cam on Today at 09:12:34 AM »
Why this series has a name '10th Anniversary of the European Monetary Union'? '10th Anniversary of the Introduction of the Euro' would more logically correct.

Unidentified tokens / Poland military JW 26 36?
« Last post by zhong235 on Today at 05:45:34 AM »
Hello, How are you ?

Excuse me, what token is this?

Google search found that this is Poland military JW 26 36?

Is there any book to find this token?

My Strato II (and first coin) arrived

This is the photo from the seller it looks even better in person and much better quality than most Strato II/III coins. It is a Senior 468c, Bopearachchi 1E. There is debate whether this is Strato II or Strato III

Note I am currently investigating the existence of an unconfirmed Strato II overstrike of Rajuvula. This would mean the currently accepted view that Rajuvula was the successor to Strato II/III to be possibly incorrect and if confirmed would mean at a minimum they co-existed

Unidentified tokens / Re: Unidentified Indian Temple Token

Thanks for the link. Due to the style and material used, I didn't presume that it'd have any particular value.

If the legend is gibberish and the designs aren't accurate, then are items like this simply made to sell to temple visitors/tourists or via exotic eBay listings?

This one is different to the ones that show vice marks which are usually at an oblique angle forming diamond shapes.

Close up of the flaw.

Yeah, I see it now. Hard to tell what it is...maybe a small gough or ding. It doesn't distract at all though because of where it is. As a matter of fact I didn't even notice it until you mentioned it.

Paris is right : Myanmar token .... Buddha depicted as Buddha Bhagavan ....... and with much nicer and more Buddha like hair than on these tokens  ;)

I am afraid it is not very old ..... or unique ...

I have once seen one described as a Burmese "Namaw Buddha Bagawa" - but I can not read the inscription ...

Pre-decimal coins and trade tokens / Re: UK Penny and Half Penny collection

Thanks
It has a lamination of some sort at 7 o'clock but it still looks good for 214 years old.

That's a nice 1806, Dale. So many of these old copper have been beat up by the passage of time...sometimes on purpose.
