I am happy to say that today was another great day. Pics will have to prove that. For the last three weeks now I have bought almost all new coins from this guy with the tool box. Before today he had brought an additional box which brought along itself some goodies. Today there were three boxes! I spoke to him afterwards and he said he got atleast a dozen more to come. I'll be buying loads it seems

Here's today's batch:



5 Centimos, Spain 1870
5 Centimes, France 1912
10 Centimes, France 1855-A
25 Centimes, France 1904

20 Centavos, Portugal 1924
1 Lira, Italy 1922
1000 Lire, Italy 1997

1 Cent, USA 1943 (P)
1 Dime, USA 1924 (P)
½ Franc, Switzerland 1921
(2x) 1 Dirham, Morocco 1960

10 Haleru, Czechoslovakia 1925
1 Koruna, Slovakia 1940

20 Grozy, Poland 1923
50 Grozy, Poland 1923
1 Zloty, Poland 1929

10 fils, Bahrain 1965
1 Lev, Bulgaria 1962

50 Rentenpfennig, Germany 1924-A
200 Mark, Germany 1923-A
5 Cents, Netherlands 1914
1 Øre, Norway 1893 & 1906
1 Øre, Norway 1919
(2x) 25 Øre, Norway 1923

6 Pence, UK 1936
1 Farthing, UK 1922
5 Cents, British East Africa 1941 & 1951

1 Nuevo Peso, Uruguay 1976
10 Escudos, Chile 1974
5 Pesos, Chile 1978
50 Centavos, Colombia 1974

50 Bani, Romania 2008
500 Pesetas, Spain 1989
50 Kurush, Turkey 2010
1 Lira, Turkey 2014
(2x) 50 Pence, UK 1997

3 coins immediately went into flips afterwards, the two silver Dirhams from Morocco and the better-looking 25 øre from Norway. The Dirhams aren't worth much more than their melt value despite their shininess, but the Norwegian piece by itself is pretty valuable (all early (=pre 1924) Norwegian pieces are). This one had mint luster along with no ear or noticable nicks. Don't know the proper grade or such but it might be pretty valuable. Nonetheless, a new marble in the collection. Only a shame it wasn't silver

Congratulations, nice finds. I especially like the 50 Rentenpfennig, they have been minted in only 2 years.

Nice assembly of purchases.
That 1943 Steel USA 1 cent looks in better shape than the ones that I have in my collection.

Going to the market was the first thing I did after coming back to Sweden after my little surprise trip to Riga, Latvia. I bought some coins over there but nothing is featured here.

Today, I went to the seller I've talked a lot about lately, and as usual I found a whole lot of interesting coins. Another seller who always shows up with coins had a new bunch of coins as well. In addition, I bought a banknote to add to my collection of modern currencies. Total, I spent 70 SEK today. Here's the pics and breakdown:




20 Cash, China, Guanhxu 1903
5 Groschen, Austria 1931
2 Annas, Pakistan 1948

20 Drachmai, Greece 1960
5 Piastres, Egypt 1957
3 Pence, South Africa 1950
10 Cents, Netherlands 1941

1 Øre, Norway 1921
10 Penniä, Finland 1943
50 Pennia, Finkand 1944
5 Cents, Canada 1945

2 Denari, Macedonia 2014
5 Denari, Macedonia 1999 & 2008

Another Lucky Charm, this one's in brass
½ Penny, Ireland 1943
20 Francs, Monaco 1950

½ Shelqel, Israel
5 Sheqalim, Israel
10 Sheqalim, Israel

5 Lira, Turkey 1975
10 Francs, Belgium 1970
50 Franc, Luxembourg 1988

200 Forint, Hungary 2009
100 Yen, Japan

50 Pesetas, Spain 1990
2½ Gulden, Netherlands 1986
5 tolarjev, Slovenia 1997

1 Rupee, Mautitius 1991
5 Rupees, Mauritius 1987

And the banknote of today:


1000 Livres (pounds), Lebanon, series 2011

Another good day down, and there's no end in sight!

I am glad that you had a surprise trip and that you were still able to make the weekly market trip. Nice buys.

Today was a nice easter day that brought along really nice and warm spring-like weather, buzzling market activity and another bunch of coins.

One thing I have noticed now after going back to the same seller for a while is that the coins typically have very sharp details. Many coins I pick up are definitely uncirculated. Always a nice surprise. I overheard the seller talking to another customer while digging through the new boxes of coins. Apparently they are aware that they leave bargains in the boxes (they sell other stuff there aswell, including old books, photos, letters and stamps) well not intentionally, but they are aware that there should be some since they think it's good business sense: customers come back (myself included ). They also said it's unusual that the boxes stick around for too long. There's the occational cherrypicker that looks through the stuff and picks out some goodies. After that there's the person who buys the whole bunch at the spot. I've noticed this at my LCS where the junk bucket (which I can assure you does NOT contain any bargains or such, I'm a thorough and returning searcher ) containing mostly common junk coins occationally get sold out since there's that guy who buys it all. Don't fully understand them but good for the sellers.

Anyway, enough jabbering about that and let's show some pics!




½ Cent, Netherlands 1917
5 Aurar, Iceland 1981
1 Rappen, Switzerland 1933
1 Farthing, UK 1928
1 Millieme, Egypt 1945
10 Korun, Czech Republic 1993 & 1995
5 Øre, Norway 1914

20 Centesimi, Italy 1918
1 Jiao, China under Japanese occupation 1934
10 Mils, Palestine 1927
10 Qirush, Egypt 1975
1 Florin, New Zealand 1950 & 1961

1 Ruble, Soviet Union 1977 (Moscow Olympics 1980)
1 Ruble, Soviet Union 1981 (Soviet-Bulgarian friendship)
5 Dollars, Hong Kong 1976
50 Stotinki, Bulgaria 1999
10 Stotinov, Slovenia 1993
(2x) 1 Centavo, Cuba 1978
2 Milliemes, Tunisia 1960
1 Reichpfennig, Nazi Germany 1940-J and 1943-A

Today's best additions have to be the ½ cent from the Netherlands and the 1 Rappen from Switzerland. I have been looking for these essentially everywhere for a good price and found nothing and yet there I was, picking them up from a box where the coins all cost 2 kr each. The irony, right? I love that feeling when you finally get something you've been looking hard for.

Everything cost me 50 SEK today, 2 SEK for every coin pictured. Looking forward already to next Sunday!

We do not mind the jabbering. Always good to have additional context.

Today started out mediocrely but ended in a steal. I went to my normal sellers, neglecting some tables I've never seen coins on. After getting some more common coins for the usual small amounts I thought I was done, but on my way to the metro there was a table with lots of people around it blocking a small pathway I was taking out from the market. That's when I heard the sound of coins while someone was looking through some sort of large plastic box. In it was all the silver coins of today's pics. The silvers cost 50 (melt=~135?), the rest 30.





1 Sen, Malaysia 1976
5 Sen, Malaysia 1977
1 Cent, Malta 1972
5 Cents, Malta 1972
2 Pence, UK 2015
10 Pence, UK 2015
200 Lire, Italy 1992
20 Lepta, Greece 1973

2.50 Escudos, Portugal 1937, 1940, 1943, 1944, 1947, 1951

1 Reichpfennig, Germany 1935-E
1 Reichpfennig, Germany 1896-A

5 Escudos, 1940, 1943
2 Franken, Switzerland 1946

5 Pence, Jersey 1990
5 Centimes, France 1920
5 Millièmes, Egypt (dateless, 1884 series date)
5 Cents, Ceylon 1971
50 Øre, Norway 1922
1 Yuan, Taiwan 1960

I spoke to the seller I've been buying from today after my purchase. He didn't bring anything new today but he said he would next week. I'm looking forward to then!

The 2 Francs from Switzerland look beautiful. I would definately keep that one ;). The Reichspfennig von 1896 seems to be in a more than decent condition as well. Nice finds overall...
