Quote from: Henk on March 29, 2020, 05:06:41 PMAn example from the Netherlands. This is one of the three types that are know (Kooy catalog). Not a farthing of course but the smallest coin in circulation, a 1/2 cent dated 1903. This is the only year known in this type of encasement.The Grand Hotel Coomans was a well known hotel in Rotterdam, located at Hoofdsteeg 12 - 22. It dates from 1874. The hotel had 70 rooms (at that time), a restaurant, reading room etc. The hotel was modernised in 1930 and expanded to 270 rooms. The building was destroyed during the bombing of Rotterdam in 1940. The building, and street, no longer exist.
Quote from: UPINSMOKE on April 06, 2020, 01:31:43 PMHi Malcolm sorry for not replying sooner. Really nice example of the La Scala. I don't suppose its available for sale as you say its an example that I do not have in my collection, rather envious. As you say there is an example in the catalogue section of the website. Although I did notice that your example is of a date that as up to now has not been recorded, so unusual in that respect. You will see that on every example in the catalogue I have added all the dates of the coins known to exist, so will be adding your date to the La Scala section.Always interested in any other examples of dated farthings that have not been recorded to add information to the website. And thank you for sharing your example with us.
