In the ongoing attempt to keep this chatting place alive, el Heron is happy to report

receiving via USMail on 20 April 2015 HRE coin number 205. This coin received from

a very fine dlr located in the east of USA between Deer Island & Key West.

 

Henneberg-Schleusingen coin:

 

This is a 1 Heller Copper coin, slightly out of round at 15mm X 16mm. 

 

On Obverse is a nicely designed monogram of ruler Moritz Wilhelm von Sachsen-Zeitz.

 

On Reverse it this legend:

 

1

Schleu

singer

Heller

1717.

 

Please note the spelling of Schleusingen to Schleusinger on the coin.  This is not

an error or typo.  The 'er' ending indicates that the item or person would be of that

place. [Such as Rostocker Pfennig {a Pfennig of Rostock] or a Hamburger meaning

a person or something from Stadt Hamburg].  Heron knows, everyone will head out 

for lunch now!

 

Also this could be an appropriate time to report the acquisition of another Henneberg

coin.  A Henneberg-ILmenau Copper 1 Heller coin of 1693.  Coin is round and 21mm dia.

 

Obverse: Coat of arms is hen walking.

 

Reverse:

ILME

NAUISCH.

HELLER.

1693.

.*. [dot-star-dot just below the 1693].

 

This area of land [of Henneberg] has a long and sometimes turbulent history including changing

'ownership' quite a few times.

Here are some 'highlights':

 

1096 - Henneberg first mentioned.

1274 - Division into Henneberg-Schleusingen- H.Aschach- Romhild & H.Hartenberg.

1310 - Henneberg raised to HRE principality.

1471 - HRE Princely Count of Henneberg.

1583 - Counts of Henneberg extinct. Lands went mostly to Saxony.  Further divided

several times, i.e., partitioned & divided amongst various Saxon quesos grandes.

A couple of Henneberg 'lines' were allowed to continue with small patches of land.

At least 2 had minting rights. These were H. ILmenau and H. Schleusingen.

 

Several questions arise regarding these small denomination Copper coins. The coin

dated 1693 is much larger and heavier than the coin dated 1717.  Perhaps there was

inflation during the time period around 1717. Or the count of Schleusingen was running

short of copper inventory?

 

Info sources:

A fun hobby for sure. Heron is now on the road towards 250 HRE & 'states' coins

issued from 1500 to 1870.

A hefty target, but could be possible within a year or 3.  Perhaps? Quien sabe?

 

[Yes, there is a Deer Island New Brunswick. In 1977 there was a 4 car 'ferry boat'

from Deer Island to Eastport in Maine.  Our heavily loaded Shiverlay Suburban

caused the small ferry boat to 'list' but we made it safely to the 'beach'. Heron likes

to use geographical points of reference where he has actually been. Yes, Key West

also. A fishing adventure...Life is good!]  Regardvs,

 

xx
