Hi Guys!

Sorry it's been awhile, but I've still got you in my faves!

New question: I bought a coin at a recent local show labeled "Poland 1/24 thaler 1624" I've poured thru my Krause's 1600"s book (7th ed.), and wasted an hour on website Numista (great site BTW!) 

Best I can find is this coin (grading only G-VG) has the obverse of Livonia-Riga KM-8; and almost the same reverse as Brandenburg-Prussia KM-116, except the symbol on the center bottom in the parenthese (or broken heart) looks like a phallic symbol between 2 centered 6 pointed stars.

Any ideras where this is from, and maybe a KM number?

This cost me all of $11.54, so I'm not out of a great deal of money (I've wasted a Lot more foolishly!), but I'd like to correctly catalog it into my collection.




A picture, metal, diameter and weight would help quite a bit.

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