Poland: Solidus coins, but which reference numbers?

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. The dies were hand engraved, so will find many differences between dies.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

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

Try this link 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. ;)
