Benefactor robinjojo Posted February 13 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted February 13 (edited) Maybe it's not a corner. It is a nicely alliterative title, better than Cob Octagon or Cob Triangle. I thought it would be nice to have a thread dedicated to these fascinating and historical coins, a venue where I can share my enthusiasm for these coin and one where we can share information and coins, perhaps instilling the collecting bug in some of you who are interested and need just a nudge to become full blown cob collectors. I have accumulated and documented many cobs over the past 40 plus years. I have posted many here and at CoinTalk. My postings are rather messy, not very systematic, jumping from one mint or king as I pull coins for photographing. Please bear with me, and I hope that the coins posted herein are both entertaining and informative. I'll start with coins that I have photographed on file. I'll continue to post and please share your cobs. If you have any questions, I will try to answer them to the best of my knowledge.
