Coins & Paper Money

A seller, not named, is selling a 1914-D as a "hole filler".

 

I do not think it would completely fill the hole.

Holas Coin Collecting Amigos!  This day was a very good day for the Heron.

Yes, Europa Central number 234 was received via U.S. Mail. 

 

This coin was issued by Kanton Schaffhausen.  It is mostly round.  A Silver coin

of 25.5mm dia.  KM 30.  12 Kreuzer aka Zwolfer Halbdichen.

 

Obverse:

At center is vignette of Ram jumping outward through city gate.

Legend surrounding is: MO - NO - SCAFUSENSIS 1622.

[The date of 1622 makes this coin an issue during the 30 Year War].

[The Schaffenhausener nicknamed the logo Schaffhausen Bock. This

translates to Schaffhausen Billy Goat].

 

Reverse:

At center is an older rendition of the Holy Roman Empire double headed eagle.

There is the number 12 on chest of eagle.

Legend surrounding eagle is: DEVS + SPENSTRAEST.

 

The word Schaffhausen is from the old Alemannic Schafuuse.

 

Some history of Schaffhausen:

In the middle ages it was a 'city-state' known as Villa Scafhusun.

 

During 9th Century this area was owned by Counts of Nellenburg.

 

867-899 Eberhardt von Nellenburg was Count.

 

1045 First mention with mintage 'rights'.

 

1049 Under rule of Abbey Allerheiligen.

 

1190 Promoted to "Imperial Free City".

 

1330 Holy Roman Emperor pledges area to the Happy Hapsburgers.

 

1418 Schaffhausener buy independence from Hapsburgers.

 

1454 Alliance with Swiss Confederation.

 

1501 Joined as full member Swiss Confederation.

 

1648 Departed the Holy Roman Empire.

 

Some notes:

Schaffhausen contains a small enclave of German territory.

This area of just under 3 square miles is Busingen am Hochrhein.

Separated from Germany by a strip of Switzerland that is 700 meters

at narrowest point.

 

Why? Busingen became part of Wurttemberg via 1805 Peace of Pressburg

Agreement. Has been an 'enclave' since 1805.

Busingen is now part of Kreis Bundesland Baden-Wurttemberg.

 

Busingen is 4 times the size of the Principality of Monaco.

 

Kanton Schaffhausen contains 115.22 square miles.

To put this in perspective, Fresno Cal is 112.5 square miles and

Sacramento Cal is 100 square miles.

 

Another neat item added to the slowly growing accumulation of coins from

Europa Central.  This Schaffhausen 1622 coin also joins the accumulation

as a member of the Holy Roman Empire grupo.
