Nice work Ansari. Possible to work your pen on the balance words on (and off) the coin so that biginers get a better understanding of how to read the coin.

Excellent, Ansari, thank you. You are in a very small group of people who wil do this. The results are an amazing guide to those who would like to collect hese coins but are wary of the script.

Yes Ansari, thank you for doing that, it opens up a whole new world of coins for me. I see a lot of similar coins at shows locally, but I'm always reluctant to buy them because I could not read them. Now I know where to go when I need them attributed!
Peter's tag line is so appropriate - An unidentified coin is a piece of metal
