I have actually quite a few Kenyan and Ghanaian coins that not quite Fair like January's but easily worn down to VG and high Good yet only being late 90s or millienium in date.

Africa is quite humid and damp and inflation is rife there, plus they don't really have plastic there unless they are rich, so these coins get heaps of use in the markets and bars amongst other things. Plus the harsh climate and all the sweat wears down even the most durable metals quickly.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Was the site down last night? I spent about an hour trying to post my challenge, and the site kept timing out.

This is a 2 pfennig from Frankfurt (presumably am Main).




Frankfurt was in operation from 1866-79 according to Krause.

Post your coin from the shortest-lived mint.

Reference to a mint is to a city, not a building. If there is a break in operation (e.g., New Orleans), and the mint reopens in the same century (ditto), the length of operation of both terms is counted.

Further questions will be addressed as they arise.

Hmm not sure how to attack this challenge as mint longevity isn't something that I typically track. Until I find something better, here is a Pine Tree Shilling issued by the Massachusetts colony mint in 1652. This mint was in operation between 1652 and 1682.

I have two NOLA coins, but no reverse images.

I will take no points. This is just to pass the time.

The coin on the right...



The coin on the left...
