Are we sure there are coins that can be ascribed to that particular year with absolute certainty?

Good question.

I might have to go on a hunt, but I think Spence will beat me to it.

Not my collecting area, but maybe someone might feel so possessed to buy one for the satisfaction of being the only member here with such a coin?

So they do exist, thanks for making that clear

I have noted that the site lists 38 dated coins from 1492, but only 19 from 1491.

Levinson shows two coins from 1491 that are not rare:

- Aachen -- 1491 Mariengroschen (Very Scarce -- 50-100 coins known)

- Gottingen -- 1491 Kortling (Very Scarce -- 50-100 coins known)

There are quite a few others, but all are "rare", according to Levinson.

Oh, that makes things interesting then. We may be stuck on 1491 for quite a while then.

Pfffffffff

$822 is a *small* price to pay to get this thread moving again!

Maybe we can wait for that one to sell and then invite the buyer to join CCF.

Out of my league for price, but I must say that I haven't even seen one of these come up for sale in about a decade of looking. Clearly, I'm not catching all auctions, but I do have my fingers out in several places.

I may be wrong, but it seems like if there's a straight-graded VF-30 up for auction, worse examples must be available from time to time. They may just be more difficult to find.

Anyone new to the Community have a 1491 hiding in their collection?

After just over three years the time has come for this thread to be closed.

The benchmark has been reached again. The Third Edition will pick up with 1491 right here.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed to this and the other HFBCWG threads.
