Quote: "SpuDy"​How much was the Lords of the Rings set?

​These are from two different sets, one set with six coins and one set with nine coins. Three of the coins are in both sets. I've paid 36 € for the first set and 54.45 € for the second set (shipment costs included). There also exists a third set with all 18 coins of this series but I haven't seen it yet and don't know how much this set will cost.

I don’t normally do these each month but had some spare time and got in a nice swap from WCHANSEN so figured I would participate. Here they are, a nice little mix of coins to fill in some gaps for me.

Nice mix. the Nicaragua centavos are quite interesting. Minted in Philadelphia, Altz and Barton tells us the brass 1943 issues were made of recycled shell casings.

I really like them as well and I had no idea about the recycled brass that makes it even more interesting!

I also like those older Nicaraguan coins very much. Unfortunately I don't have them yet but hope to find them soon. I also like the older Peruvian coin. If these all came from the same swap: very nice swap!

They all did come in the same swap and I was very happy with it. Recently the older South American coins have really started to grow on me.

Essor Proof, love your stuff, the Silver currency set is very nice and collectible. I regret I don't have one, as I can't afford them and their price is way above the melt.

I am now in the process of updating my earlier coins of NZ (Silver 1933 - 1946) from the "Ave Circ" ones that I every other collector have (Good or VG condition) with VF - EF condition ones. I just bought these on Wednesday


1934 Halfcrown - grade gVF, aEF (Uncirculated ones cost $500 or more, this cost $40, the standard blackened and worn thing with a flat George costs $5 - $10)


1944 Halfcrown, this is a wee bit more worn and like most VF coins has blackish or brown stains as these coins were 50% silver/45% Copper and 5% Zinc and stain easily. This cost more ($50), but 1944 was the rarest date halfcrown besides the centennial, even a worn G 1944 costs $10 and a decent Fine coin is $30, so $50 for a VF25 like this is a bargain. An EF one costs $200 and the UNC one is $1000.



Threepences 1943 and 1946 - These are cheaper to get more coin for your money. As they only have 60 cents of silver in them. Worn ones cost 50c - $1 and often a worn coin will be gVG or Fine if you are lucky. UNC ones are still scarce and cost around $100 a pop for common dates, triple that for less common ones and the 1935 is like $2000 and $150 for a worn one.

These coins are all EF/AU (About XF45) and given they are tiny, seeing wear on a coin that tiny is hard. The best part of these coins is EF is cheap and these babies cost $10 or $15 each.

I have hit some hard times lately with expensive car repairs and work issues, so this may be my last new coin post for a bit.
I love coins, both old and precious and also change coins. If its round and shiny, it will garner my interest. I also collect stamps and have an abiding interest in History, Archaeology,  and Social Issues.  I also worship the musical god Prince.

Recent purchases from my local coin shop



Australia $1 2010 Shanghai World Expo



Gibraltar 1 Crown 2015 50th Anniversary of the Death of Sir Winston Churchill
Different from the coin already on Numista as it is not plated.

I have added this coin and am waiting for validation. Put it down as silver as it is individually numbered, but now not entirely sure of metal content.
It is 5mm thick, which is unusual for a standard crown coin
I'm just a collector of coins, not a slave to it, unless I am in a coin shop.

Got my Silver pieces from last week and they are stunning as expected



Fully as described, for some reason with our Predecimal silver coins, by the time you reach VF the coin practically has full lustre. Most you find are worn as base silver (Half) coins had a copper heart and silver wears off quickly, hence the "Blackened" appearance you find on more worn coins like these below


Those I sold

The 44 Halfcrown is actually a bit less than the condition I want for my new collection (Goal gVF for large coins, EF for small ones), but 44 is a rare date (100k coins compared to 500k - 2.5 million for other dates) and thus a VF coin is a good example. The 1940 Halfcrown coin is also 100k, but these were salted away quickly and its hard to find one under VF, on the other hand a 1944 is hard to find in Fine condition and most are G whereas KGVI halfcrowns are usually VG in standard condition.

The Threepences are all stunning and I like that the 1934 Halfcrown and 3d have a nice clean portrait of KGV. The detail rapidly vanishes below F and by G you have a silhouette!

I also brought off a friend 2 Bertrand (Our versions of Push in cardboard folders) folders full of a nearly complete set of Halfpence and Pennies


Halfpennies

The coins are mostly excellent, some verdigris staining, unlike the silver ones, these coins lost their lustre fast and most VF/EF coins are already brown. Sadly a few are stained and have verdigris (You also find it on the "Silver coins" and "Cupronickel" which were 50% and 75% copper. These can be replaced.

With Kiwi copper, generally coins 1940 - 1955 are F in standard condition and VF 1956 to 1962, 1963 - 1965 should be at least EF and UNC for 1964 is common. 1965 pennies are less common as they only came in sets and should ideally be at least AU.



Pennies - a nice lot.

These sets are nice as average condition of the coins is VF+ and some copper above this level attracts a premium. No rare dates but 1954/55 Halfpence are scarce and 1954 Pennies. A 1956 Strapless coin is also very scarce. The sets also had a few spares as room is shown for the obverses (George Emperor, George Sixth and Elizabeth. The 1961 onwards Halfpence are essentially UNC.

That completes my basic set of NZ coins sans the 1935 3d and the Waitangi Crown (Also looking for an UNC 1949 Crown)

I don't have a lot of spare cash right now, but I got a good deal on an 1857 cent, working on filling out my type/sub-type collection. The 1858 are split between the "small letters", like mine, and the "large letters". All 1857 are "large letters". So now I have both sub-types. (1856 is technically a pattern, not a circulation type, so that doesn't count for filling out my collection, thankfully).

Like the numista page says, the easiest way to tell apart without them side by side like this, is the large letters have the base of the A and M attached, and the small letters are separate.





https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces14014.html

Personally, I love the "white nicks", they have a totally unique sound when they clink together. And that alloy was only used from 1857-1864. I now have 4 of them total (1859 "no shield" and 1863 Indian head cents)

My latest purchase of a premium coin.



Another silver halfcrown and this one is AU, catalogued at over $200, I got it for only $50 as its toned at top, and the circle shows a nasty stain where some copper may have leached through. Tiny imperfections like this can reduce a coin's price greatly. Still I am aiming for VF - EF coins and a goal of no more than $50 per date, so to get a coin in AU/BU (I really can't see any wear on it at all) is a major coup in my book, especially if you saw the super worn 1945 coin I have now it will replace.

Another quality Half Crown - this time a 1937 with good lustre and gVF condition



Joy of these series is the reverses remain sharp right down to bare VF condition, whereas George's hair wears off fast. Compared to the usual coin, this is gold.

Only one addition ...

'Minting error UK 1947 George VI halfpenny'

'Sold with normal 1947 coin for comparison. The abnormal coin, on the left in photos, is 1mm diameter smaller, and about half the thickness and weight of normal coin. It appears to have some wear and has been in circulation. I presume it was made with an incorrect smaller blank'.

Bought this bunch of mostly-medieval coins last Wednesday...



I already know what some of those are, and have posted others on CCF for identification.
Some, however, still remain unidentified (so far, at least).

In order, top to bottom and left to right...

- Hungarian denar, Lajos I, 1346-9 - identified for me on CCF
- looks like a medieval German or Austrian coin, but copper; might be a contemporary counterfeit
- Despotate of Serbia, Đurađ Branković (type not on Numista) - identified for me on CCF
- I honestly have no idea; probably Vietnamese, but could be Chinese, Japanese, or Korean
- Russian 10 kopek 1834; not medieval
- Polish Riga (Duchy of Livonia) 1617 solidus; highly off-center
- Islamic AE, no idea; posted on CCF, [s]not identified yet[/s] possibly identified (if correctly, type not on Numista)
- Hungarian denar, Karoly Robert or Lajos I - identified by me, but only after posting on CCF
- Islamic AR, no idea; posted on CCF, not identified yet
- weird 1625 Hungarian denar; similar to this type, but about half weight
- Hungarian 1611 denar - full size this time
- honestly dunno; not posted on CCF yet
- Bull & Horseman AE jital; not posted on CCF yet
- another Chinese-style coin; again, probably Vietnamese, but could be something else
- another Bull & Horseman AE jital, also not posted on CCF yet
- and a Vietnamese cast coin, apparently this type or similar

All of those combined came out to a bit under $30. It was a nice bargain bin.

(Also bought a few other coins, which weren't on this photo; might describe them later.)

They really are appealing;)

​yes I see what you mean with NCLTs. I’ve been slowly stopping them though I’m making an exception for Austria, Germany and India. I have an affinity for Germany while India is the mother country. But Austrian coins are simply stunning as you mentioned already. Except the 25€ niobium coin, I got them at face value. They were previously only issued in silver, but then when silver prices rose and they couldn’t offer it at face value anymore, I opted for the newly introduced copper version which imo are actually even more beautiful!

​You're on a roll with swaps recently! I agree about the Lebanese coin, and this last one is neat too. Is it Serbian?

Today I got some copper

Hungary - Franz Joseph: 1 Krajczár 1879 KB (KM#458)
Austria - Fraz I: 1 Kreutzer 1763 W (KM#2007)
Austria - Maria Theresia: 1 Kreutzer 1780 S (KM#1995)

but the most interesting (and R) is:
Transylvania - Maria Theresia: 1 Pfenning 1764 CA (KM#1979, ÉH#E641)
I'm not 100% sure of the KM number, because there is no mint mark for this coin, and it's under Austria. However I can't find any match under Transylvania, so that's looks like the best option.

​Stunning coins, in case you don't know, they are King Farouk and dates are AD1937 - AH1356, which would be the first full year of his reign, before he got fat. The two top coins are 10 and 5 Qirsh. Bottom centre is 2 qirsh and right 1 qirsh. Suspect left one is 1 milleme brass.

Anyway I love classic Middle eastern stuff like this.
I love coins, both old and precious and also change coins. If its round and shiny, it will garner my interest. I also collect stamps and have an abiding interest in History, Archaeology,  and Social Issues.  I also worship the musical god Prince.

The Ottoman empire and the post Ottoman states including ​Egypt is my main interest currently. I have almost completed a collection of the Egypt Kingdom era. the big silvers are easy to find, though rather too expensive usually, it's the 1/2 milliemes are the hardest to find.
I'm afraid you are a denomination off in your list above, the big one is a 20, then a 10, 5 and 2, all silver. the bronze is indeed a 1 millieme.

I see klei92 has just posted a lovely Egyptian 10 para

​You are so right, I got my figures wrong.
I used to have some of these coins, as many of our soldiers went to Egypt in WW1 and WW2 and bought them back, they ranged from Muhammad V and even Abdul Hamid II coins in WW1 and these and King Fuads in WW2, I remember the 5 qirsh was the size of a shilling, so that would make the 20 Qirsh nearly the size of a crown.

My bad.

no worries! your information about ANZAC soldiers bringing Egyptian coins back is very interesting.
I have purchased some of my best pieces for this project from Oz sellers, and wondered that there should be such a horde down there.
