  1. here is my Wild Man : 12 Mariengroschen = 1/3 Thaler , 32 mm, 6,4 gr, Georg Ludwig (1660-1727) in 1698 The Wild Man was also used in The Netherlands : a test in tin from the same medalist as my medal for the king. It was made in 1828 for the academy in 's Hertogenbosch, now in the Netherlands : 52 mm, 19,8 gr., Dirks, N.P., p 241, nr 300 KONINKLIJKE SCHOOL VOOR NUTTIGE EN BEELDENDE - KUNSTEN TE S’HERTOGEN-BOSCH. : Royal School for useful and plastic arts in 's Hertogenbosch. Wild Man with his left hand on a crown and the arms of the town of 's Hertogenbosch, left an orange tree, symbol for the king of the Netherlands : the house of Oranje (from Orange)-Nassau
  2. @Finn235 did you try to identify the coins, I think it is possible for some ones ?
  3. I have only one Probus'Alexandrian coin, dated year 5. 18 mm , 7 gr , as 12 u / BMC16,315,2428.
  4. I contacted the museum of Bruges and had an answer today : the conservator wrote the medals of Leopold I are 14 carat yellow gold : 'Als de zilveren versie van de kroningsmedaille effectief vervaardigd is uit sterling zilver (Ag 925, soortelijk gewicht 10,4) of eerder zilver Ag 835 (soortelijk gewicht 10,2), zou een medaille met exact dezelfde afmetingen, maar een hoger gewicht kunnen gemaakt zijn uit geelgoud van 14 karaat (Au 585, soortelijk gewicht 13,7). Die 14kt geelgouden medaille zou immers 63,75 gram moeten wegen. Aangezien uw medaille een halve millimeter kleiner meet, zou dat het lichte verschil kunnen verklaren' : The silver medal is sterling silver (AG 925, 10.4 specific weight)- or sooner AG 835 (s.w. 10.2), a medal with exact the same dimensions, but a higher weight can be in yellow gold of 14 carat (Au 585, s.w.13.7). This yellow gold medal would weight 63.75 gr. Your medal is half a millimetre smaller, what would explain the difference. I don t have to say I was very happy with this answer. The contact was very good and as I had more problems with this collections, she is very interested. I hope one day to visit and see the objects they have from De Hondt.
  5. 🙂@Roman Collector what I win if I guess what is supposed to depict ? 😀 I have several of these coins in various qualities : a beautiful one : IMP TETRICUS / PAX AUG : RICVb100, 17 mm , 2,06 gr , as 11, AD 270 – 273.
  6. There are 4 books for le numéraire mérovingien, so I think it is difficult and very expensive ttps://www.mediatheques-grandpoitiers.fr/search.aspx?SC=DEFAULT&QUERY=Parent_id_exact%3a"773302"&QUERY_LABEL=Recherche+de+volumes&QUERY_SORT=VolumeNumber_sort&QUERY_SORT_ORDER=0#/Search/(query:(InitialSearch:!t,
  7. @panzerman if you want, I can try to find this @Theoderic "Le Numeraire Merovingien L'Age de L'Or" published in 1998? It has been printed in Wetteren, it is not so far from Antwerp, so maybe, I can help you.
  8. ow did you collect it and how do you know it is hacksilver? There are very beautiful pieces in it. I have only a few coins of hacksilver like this one : Gallia . Petrocores – Nitibroges, 11 mm , 1,88 gr , as 11 h, 3° - 2° eeuw voor Christus
  9. beautiful coin, mine is not so beautiful SNG ANS 906 , BMCItaly,7., 20 mm , 7,9 gr , as 7 uur, circa 420 – 400
  10. @DonnaML I think you're right. I visited many museums in Italy since 1966 (first visit of Rome) and I saw changes in the important museums ( musea?), but in small towns, often nothing has changed since Methusalem 🙂
  11. I never saw such special notes. It are private bank emissions, I suppose ? Very nice. I have also a lot of banknotes, but nothing special, most German from the Weimarrepublik (gutschein, notgeld and notes for .... million mark). Interesting is this note from France : ' billet de deux francs complémentaires' There is no serial number, only a number 23674441 and 'série de 1944', , I didn't find a reference, it seems to be ' une impression américaine, type drapeau (flag)'. It is all I know about it.
  12. Very interesting video. The only thing I found till now is a neolithic spearhead in my garden in my second residence, near to the of German and Luxemburg. I found also some coins in the house, build and dated 1732. About 500 m a Roman villa, only ruins has been excavated 50 years ago. Here a coin, showed in the video at the end : RRC363,1d, 18 mm , 3,46 gr , as 3 uur, coined BC Obverse : Laureate head of Apollo r., reverse : Marsyas, bald-headed, walking l., with r. arm raised and holding wine-skin over l. shoulder, behind : column bearing statue of Victory, before : L.CENSOR
  13. @panzerman I think you did well. I have a numismatic friend who has for more than 4000 € ancient Belgian banknotes in new condition. Last week we were discussing about it and I said him to sell, but he wants to keep all. In his place, I sell and buy beautiful ancient coins.
