Quote from: Figleaf on August 31, 2013, 10:49:27 AMWell put, aan09. Coins can serve a number of different purposes for the collector; the story it tells is always motivating. You can show this coin to visitors, see them become amazed at the ghost of Edward, then explain the thing. Edgar Allen Poe became famous with such stories Peter
Quote from: brokencompass on October 19, 2013, 05:02:14 AMMy favorite coin is the Regulating dub from Madras presidency!......To just think that this whole coin was created just for the purpose of easy exchange between the old and new coinage is mind boggling to me. That's why it is one of my most favorite coins!
Quote from: Harry on October 19, 2013, 04:06:34 PMYes @brokencompass, quite interesting indeed! Thanks for the info I did not know the details. Loved the "dramatic music" I had the drum roll and the whole band playing in my head!
Quote from: repindia on October 26, 2013, 08:30:02 PMInteresting choice and great coin. I am still undecided as to which is my single most greatest coin, but one of them has to be a Rupee from Madras which is overstrck on a 4 Reales coin. This coin clearly shows the undertype, has adjustment marks made at the mint and in overall great condition. No pictures now and maybe someday later. This is only one of the coins which would be the last to go if ever. :-) I will think of more nominations and then come up with a winner. :-)
