Sorry, I should have pointed out that the date on these dreipolkers (truncated to just 2 8) is at 10:30 and 1:30 on the orb side, between the orb and the ring around it.
Thank you, because I was having a difficult time finding it as well.

Maybe the Prussian mintmaster was heartbroken that his city had been taken over by Swedes


Maybe he was ecstatic that his city wouldn't be subjected to massive murder, rape, looting, and arson by the genocidal Habsburgs.

That wasn't meant to be any kind of political or religious position ... sorry if it came off that way.

Tdiziema - you got 786 points not 393, I forgot non Danish coins get the double marks! A worthy 2nd place.

Thanks for all the Great Entries

They were very Heartening!

Punned humour, dry wit and sarcasm are all my life.

Meanwhile Arkie - your turn to start a new contest!

I don't have any ancients, so the oldest I can do is this Byzantine coin that dates to 1160-1164. The emperor and the saint on the reverse are both shown armored and carrying swords.

Ike in uniform (well, you see his hat). Does this count as battle garb?

I don't have any wartime ancients either.

And to be honest, is Charles here fighting or just prancing around with a sword?

1635 English Halfcrown coin - my pece de celebre'




The sword suggests he is about to kick someone's butt though. Yes in 1635 you went into war fully wigged and wearing a lace collar! And not forgetting that crown in case some jumped up wannabe on the otherside forgot who they were messing with

I think the way @Arkie wrote the rule for this round, we get to include those coins with the sovereign posing in his armor, rather than actually getting ready to fight.

Just to make sure I have another horse in this race (), there is little doubt about this one:


Duchy of Lorraine, double denier, undated from the reign of Theobald II (1303-1312).

Any extra credit for a horse dressed for battle?
