Not used for payments / Re: Unidentified token 25 JVA HS / K

The form of the J suggests German or Dutch to me (in the linguistic sense, so including AT, CH, BE as well as DE and NL).

Spain, Portugal / Re: Gibraltar 5 Pence 1990 large size
« Last post by FosseWay on June 23, 2019, 12:34:07 PM »
Apart from the obvious about the Jersey obverse that Alan has already mentioned, it looks to me as if the Gibraltar reverse is the small variety. If you compare the sizes of the two coins with the weave of the fabric they are sitting on, the Jersey coin looks larger. Or is it just an optical illusion?

Spain, Portugal / Gibraltar 5 Pence 1990 large size
« Last post by Alan71 on June 23, 2019, 11:35:56 AM »
There are some 1990 Gibraltar BU coin sets on eBay and they only include the smaller version, not the large.  I’d therefore say it’s unlikely that a large one exists.

That obverse in the photo Col posted is a Jersey 5p.  Gibraltar coins were introduced in 1988 with the Maklouf portrait.  Circulation coinage never carried the Machin portrait.  Unless it’s a mule, that cannot be two sides of the same coin (not sure it could even be a mule as Gibraltar coins were Pobjoy-produced and Jersey’s were the Royal Mint).

I knew I had seen a similar K somewhere before too but didn't know anymore where I had seen it. Just came across my desk and noticed a shopping cart token of Kaufland on there. Not a 100% match but still very similar. The search continues..

Can't tell if this is a large coin or not, but it has the older portrait...

Spain, Portugal / Re: Assist - Portugal/Azores Reis Coin 1795 - Countermarked?
« Last post by Figleaf on June 23, 2019, 10:12:40 AM »
Agreed on the date, but at 25 mm, that is a 5 reis. That type was not officially counter-stamped. The mainland III reis of similar size was counter-stamped (RRRR), but the legend fits the Açores coin.

Actually, I think that if this coin had been counter-stamped, the arms on the other side would have suffered damage, while in fact, it is the clearest part of the coin.

Look at the "K" sideways and it becomes an M. Yet, I know I have seen that form of K before. If so, I would prefer a germanic language, as latin languages prefer a "C". The 25 also points at North or North-West Europe.
