Nothing fancy, but as a beginner collector, I am happy to have them in my collection.

The first one is a 1680 Dutch (Overijssel) 6 Stuivers (KM#50). This coin measures 28mm. It is holed, but it was a prize I won from a "holed coin" contest. It is the largest hammered coin in my collection.







The second coin is a dated 1620 German State Brandenburg 3 Groscher (1/24 Thaler) minted under Georg Wilhelm. I know that these are very common, cheap coins that most hammered collectors do not like, but it is the oldest DATED coin that I have, so it has a very special place in my collection. It measures 18.5mm.







Thank you for taking the time to look at a couple of my coins.

Not too shabby--I hope that you will be able to contribute to the "a coin from each year" thread. Right now there are a couple that are already past this coin, but it wouldn't surprise me if @jbuck started a new one at some point.

„The second coin is a dated 1620 German State Brandenburg 3 Groscher (1/24 Thaler) minted under Georg Wilhelm."
The date is 1626, not 1620. You can see „6" in right part of reverse. Also, the nominal is not 3, but 1.5 groat (Dreipölker in German, it means 3 half-groats) Regards!

Way cool Doug!

I know next to nothing about really old coins, so I found your posted coins to be fascinating and fun to learn about.

Thanks for posting!
