Please help me identify this coin. I have identified about 3,000 coins in the last two months but I need some help with this one. I've put three days in on trying to identify it already. Any help would be appreciated. I've included pictures of both sides, I hope they are clear enough.
I had considered the possibility it might be some kind of token but as Thomcollects had mentioned it reminds me of some old European coins. The bird appears to be either a snipe or a kiwi or some such similiar bird. As I have been looking I've decided the resemblence is more near a snipe, but don't let me lead you in some direction on that. I googled the native country of a snipe and found some similar coins and guess what it was Europe. It's rather worn so there may have been some dates or letters on it at one time. Most of the coins I've been looking at are in really good shape because they have been bottled up since the later 50's early 60's and untouched. The whatever inside the wreath looks like letters of some sort as echizento pointed out, but the center most portion of this is quite worn. I believe it's all one continuous line (looks kind of like a ribbon or old English or something like that). Oh, by the way Thomcollects it was in a bottle of about 200 European,South American, and Middle Eastern coins. I'll be back at it tomorrow.
Wow Wow Wow I would like to understand how you found that DCH. ITS A MATCH! Sorry I didn't intend to get so excited. Both sides are an exact match to the one I have in my hand. Thank You Thank You Thank You ! All of you guys! Awesome DCH! Absolutely Awesom
