« on: November 05, 2017, 01:38:23 PM »

Also, what is the difference between an lepton and a prutah?

Few WoC members include these coins in their primary interest. You might try sending a PM to mrbrklyn, but he hasn't been active lately.

Alternatively, you can take Roger's A handy guide to Jewish coins from the WoC bookshelf and see how far you can get.

thanks for the link to the books. That sub forum was new for me. Tried to read the book. But the scan is really bad. But i see at the plates that there are a lot of different purdah's. So it going to be a difficult one to figure it al out.

(send the PM, thanks for the hint)
