Wah, he has a weird shaped head, or is that a hat? Who is this guy and why did he burn?

He was a 15th century priest that seems to have been active at the time of the reformation and schism within the catholic church, and got caught up in the politics of the time. I think that's a hat rather than an odd shaped head :) He was burned for his reformer type beliefs.

Awesome specimens 'Bacchus2'. Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic do have some beautiful coins. Here's one I'd like to share. This a gold Dukat from the old republic dated 1926. These were supposed to be trade coins issued between 1923 and 1939, and a few in 1951. I love the stylized arms on the obverse, and the rendering of Duke/Prince: Wenceslas I on the reverse.

Nice Spider-Man coin. Oh, wait, Peter Parler. Never mind.

Still a nicely toned coin.

Yes - I find it hard to look at this coin and not think of Peter Parker. Perhaps I could market is as a rare 30 year old piece of spiderman merchandice :)

The duckat is a beauty. I had toyed with the idea of getting one a few years ago - but got distracted with other stuff. I might have to put it back on the agenda now :)
