While Liberia was settled by Americans, it was never an American colony -- there were never American government officials managing the nation, as there were in the Philippines, for example.

This is crazy, I just got angry as you gave me a choice of whether that coin was worth 4 or 5 points and I decided 4, but you got all huffy over it.
If I had remembered that I typed that, we could have had a good laugh and moved on. I apologize.

To be clear, hindsight and irrelevant now I know, I said "4 or 5" because:

For me, the diameter was never in question, but the vine thing was.

Here we need to agree to disagree and move on.
Agreed. Again, I just wanted to teach you something since you have taught me a lot. No hard feelings.

Good point - coins or coin equivalent only. Things like notgeld are acceptable, but it must have a face value and be something that you could reasonably expect to pay taxes or a parking ticket with (at least at the time of issue)

I don't have pictures of most of my world coins. For what it's worth, though, I have a bunch of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/174618454200
Probably 2" in diameter and 3-5 g. They are not, however, legal tender.

2.2 grams
27mm




In Memory of Crazyb0 12-26-1951 to 7-27-2020

Oh that I was where I would be,

Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.
