Hi smedley miss you over at the PD thread on the soapbox. You dropped in for a spell but then dropped out. I know it's not the same when it was on this board. Too much competition from the other political threads I guess.

Holas Munzen Aficionados:
"Post what is on your mind, there is no official topic here".
During 2014 Heron acquired various "HRE" coins and one of these is an 'Oh' coin.
Yes, a coin beginning with the letter 'O'. Is this news? Well, possibly.
The coins available starting with the letter 'O' are few and far between.
Researching Wikit's list of HRE states we find that there are only 39 'states'
beginning in letter 'O'. This is from about 1100 AD. Heron does not know
how many of these listed 'states' had minting 'rights'. Probably not all of the
states listed were granted minting 'rights'.
The coin Heron acquired is a One Batzen Silver 25mm dia. issued by Ottingen
and dated 1523. It depcts San Sebastian and for that reason Heron posted a
mention on the Saints 'topic'.
In the Standard Catalog of Germanian coins 1601 to 'present' there are only
5 listed 'O' coins. Heron has 3 of these:
In the Standard Catalog of World Coins 1800 - 'present' there are no listings
for Swizterland or Italy. There is one for Austria and that is Olmutz. Heron has
an Olmutz issue.
So, finding and acquiring a nice Ottingen coin was a real treat for Heron
during 2014. And the search continues, along with enjoying the continuing fun
of world coin collecting! A lifetime hobby por seguro! Regardvs.

Wish I could go to one of the major shows, but my right leg says not yet. It was weakened by a TIA and a brain hemorrhage. I thought someone would let me go with them and drop me off at the entrance to the Baltimore Show but guess not. Just been going threw some of my old collection and old memories. Maybe I'll go to the Vienna Show the weekend of Jan 24 - 26. I know I can't spend much since I owe several thousand to medical providers. Sometimes life just bites you in the butt don't you know.

Hola TDZ: your post 10 Jan 2015 0856: Yes, a well thought out disciplined 'want list' is
a good thing. Then whilst searching for items sometimes 'serendipity' supercedes the
well disciplined 'want list'... and voila! You find yourself the owner of something neat but
not on the 'want list'. This happens to Heron often. All of this merely contributes to
the overall fun of coin collecting. Good luck! Regards,

Hola TDZ your post of 8 Jan 2015 1745: Your comentario "I started a new collection area,
which has the potential to cause serious financial damage". Yes, Heron DID get a chuckle
outta that comentario. One way to counter serious financial damage is to develop an 'iron will'
regarding acquisitions. This is not always an easy thing to do, especially when encountering
neat items in the market place. Good luck! Regards,
Obviously I have been doing some research on that new area while populating another thread .
Now the question is how to compile the list. Unfortunately I have already done a bit of "ready, fire, aim." So, now I will try to sharpen my sights! Which, indeed will take some discipline. As we have seen in the other thread, just for an image of St. Peter, one needs to decide which depiction, which country, which era ... and whether it is preferred to have him alone, or (as is possible with some Papal States coins) in combination with Paul. Of course, one could leave it somewhat to serendipity, and when a "neat" example comes up, just go for it.
