Coins & Paper Money

 

In his 'July Treasures' topic, TDZ advised us about another chat board where the

chatters would report and summarize their 'finds' for the month.  Heron was gonna

add this info to the July topic but decided against.

 

Some items acquired by Heron during August 2015:

 

British West Indies, 1/8 Dollar, dated 1822 and is Silver. Another 'bit' item perhaps?

This series of coins is sometimes called 'Anchor Money' because of the nice anchor

depicted thereon.  This is Heron's first 1/8 Dollar Anchor coin. A fun find.

 

British East Africa Company, Mombasa: A 1 Pice coin dated 1888 with Calcutta Mint

Mark.  These coins are relatively plentiful.  This is Heron's 3rd Mombasa. All three

have legends in different font size.  This most recent added item has legends in 3

different font sizes.  An item added just for fun.

 

East Africa & Uganda Protectorates.  A British issue of 10 Cents and dated 1911.

When Heron saw this coin in dealer's inventory Heron could not remember if there

was one in the 'accumulation' of Brit Empire stuff.  So it was purchased.  Turned out

that there was NOT one a these in the old accumulation. Must have sold the original

on eBay during the 'hot' days!

 

British Essequibo & Demerary Half Stiver dated 1813.  A nice 'upgrade' for Heron

and so it was included in the purchased batch.  A nice Copper coin.

 

British East India Company Half Anna Copper coin dated 1835. Another 'minor' coin

that was not in Heron's batch of British Empire coins.  Nice VF with no edge dings.

About the same size as an Essequibo & Demerary One Stiver coin.

 

British 1/2 Penny Copper dated 1799.  No reason to purchase this coin except it is

a nice VF with no edge dings.  Heron already owned several.  However, because

Heron was viewing a nice batch of British Empire coins he bought it anyhow. Just for FUN!

And the fact that these large coppers are some a Heron's favoritos. [And the price was

'right'.

 

All the above coins were purchased from one Socal dealer at his place of business.

 

Last and small but not least is a Mexico 1/4 Real Silver coin dated 1843. 

This coin has the Ga. Mint Mark.

This is the Guadalajara mint.  Always something 'new' to add. A nice 'find' because

Heron did not have a 1/4 Real issued by Guadalajara.  This item was also purchased

from a local coin dealer at his place of business.  Sometimes we have to revert to the

old fashioned method of acuisitions in order to add some neat stuff!

 

Regardos.
