Here is a Kreutzer from the Austrian Duchy of Vienna dated AD 1484. The two-digit date is on the reverse, with the number four looking like a ribbon.

I have a short run of these Florentine grossi in the early '80s.

This one, datable to the first half of 1483, symbol of mintmaster Cante di Giovani di Cante Compagni in the crook of Saint John's arm. MIR 62/44



Edit: Oops! I thought we were doing one year per day. Sorry for jumping the gun.

Nice coins, good to see the thread come back to life.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Here is another Austrian Kreutzer. This one is dated AD 1483 (again just using the last two digits) and was minted in Graz:

I think we are probably good to drop back now as it has been a day and a half since the last coin for 1483 was posted. Please let me know @jubuck if you are wanting to give folks even more time to contribute. Thx.

Here is a Half-Schwertgroschen from the Electorate of Saxony. It was minted in Zwickau with the date of 1482 AD.
I suppose if I don't do a better job with protecting it compared with a previous owner, then this will end up being two Quarter-Schwertgroschen. The two-digit date is visible on the reverse at about 11 o'clock. Interestingly the number 2 is significantly smaller in size than the number 8.

I think the standard 24 hour window is good. I do hope anyone who wants to post something this old is watching this topic.

However, as long as everyone is okay with it, we can allow a one-day catch-up window if someone happens to miss their chance.

Yes especially @collects82, as it is only one day in a hundred that he can contribute to this thread! I'll message them if we don't see a 1482 post in the next day or so.

Hmm nothing from @collects82. Should we continue to wait or move on to 1481?
