Need help. Please identify coin. Egyptian?

 

In the ongoing effort to contribute coin info for our Coin & Paper Money chatting board

and to keep the board alive and lively [along with saints & palm trees] Heron is pleased

to report another "S" coin acquired on 22 Nov 2014:

 

SOEST: Imperial City of Holy Roman Empire:

 

This coin measures 26mm diameter and is Silver.  Date is 1620.

 

On Obverse at center is Coat of Arms of Soest with legend "SVSATENSIS".

[In olden times the town was also known as 'Susat'.]

 

On Reverse at center is very large Roman Numeral II in an ornate design.

At 12 oclock is large "S".

 

Some info re Stadt Soest:

First mentioned in 836 in the "Dagobertsche Schenkung".

 

Associated with Archbishopric Koln until 1449.

 

From 1449 to 1609 Soest was an "Imperial City" and Hanseatic League member.

 

Soest 'annexed' by Brandenburg in 1609.  [However, apparently der Brandenburgers

allowed Soest to continue minting coins to at least the year 1620].

 

The coin dated 1620 was interesting to Heron because that year was

the year of the Pligrims landing on the 'rock'.

 

A legend: The legend has it that the town of Soest was the capitol city of Attila of

the Hunnic Empire.  Source states Attila died in year 453.

 

Modern & current Soest location info: Located in Staat Nord Rhein-Wesphalia.

Kreis Soest population about 47,000.

 

"S" coin numbers update:

 

German 'states'... 25.

Austria.................   3.

Swiss..................    5.

Italy.....................    2.

 

The "S" coins are still in front of the 'pack' and continue to grow in numbers!

Amazing.

 

Info Sources:

Wikit-Soest Germany.

Map of Soest -Map Quest.

Soest - Encyclopedia Brittanica.

NGC coin info.

 

[Fussnote: In Heron's info search of auction sites, he somehow retrieved a 'site' in

Espanol! And also learnt a new Spanish word ..."Agotado".  Meaning "sold out". We

are never too old to learn somthin!]...

Regards,

 

xx
