  1. Yet another one! My foray into the Byzantine world has not been enjoyable. I think that I will leave it there and not try to fill the 'gaps', anymore. Thank you, everybody.
  2. You could try John's suggestion of https://www.ashampoo.com/en-us/snap-free It should work on Windows 7
  3. I have this coin that was described to me as Alexius 1 Komnenos, however I am unable to confirm this. Is that because it is NOT Alexius 1 Komnenos? AE18.2mm., 4.1gm.
  4. Yes. I looked at that and suspected as much, but it was so different to what came before that it was a totally new program to me, and you know what they say about 'old dogs' and 'new tricks'. I am happy to have back something I am familiar with. Thank you, again.
  5. Update: John, I just found the 'download' on an old HDD, and it worked. (Phew!)
  6. Thank you, John, but no. The 'Avatar' looked more like (but not the same as) this.
  7. Until recently I had a useful tool that enabled me to crop a 'screenshot'. From memory, I think it may have been called 'Ashampoo Magical Snap'. Despite half a day of searching I cannot find it, again. Can someone, who knows what I am speaking of, please provide me with an 'address' for it? . . . . . (Not 'Snippy') Thank you.
  8. I believe that this coin is (may be) Celtic in origin, but I am unable to place it. Hopefully, someone may recognise something from it that will put me on the right track. The coin is bronze AE12mm., and weighs 1.88gm. Any assistance is greatly appreciated
  9. Thank you, M____n. I see what you see. Where would that lead us? Byzantine? John III (perhaps) . . . . similar to (but not the same as . . . . or . . . .
  10. Now I see the watering pot. I saw a cat jumping up from the right to the left.
  11. I don't have a clue of what I am looking at here. Can someone help me please? I have this 1.89gm., AE18.4mm. coin and I really don't know where to start with it. I am hoping that it will ring someone's bells as to what it is and/or where it has come from. Any help is appreciated, thank you, (in anticipation).
  12. @ewomack Thank you. I believe that you are absolutely correct. (see example below)
  13. @JeandAcre Thank you for letting me know of the coin's arrival. I hope that it will provide enjoyment to you.
  14. I purchased this coin as TIBERIUS II Constantine SB 452, but I am having doubts. I have narrowed it down to TIBERIUS II Constantine, or, Maurice Tiberius, or, Phocas. Can anyone help me please?
  15. @maridvnvm Thank you, Martin. You have confirmed my suspicions. I appreciate your work. I am old enough to remember when the 'crooks' wore masks and black hats, but . . . (Obviously low investment coins, but still annoying.)
