Benefactor robinjojo Posted July 14, 2022 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted July 14, 2022 (edited) There have been wide bodies of the recent past, such as the legendary Boeing 747: But in numismatics wide bodies, coins stuck on unusually broad flans, go back much further. Yesterday a multiple dirham arrived, a remarkably wide coin for its time in the 10th century. Samanid, Nuh III b. Mansur I, AH 365-385 (976-997 AD),AR multiple dirham, no date. 45mm, 14.98 grams Going back a little further, there were the reform folles of Justinian I. Justinian I, follis, Nicomedia, regnal year 13 (539/40 AD), officina B. From Roma E-Sale 98, lot 1663. 43mm, 23.48 grams So, please post any wide flan coins or medals you wish, ancient, medieval, modern and anything in between. Thanks!
