Probably not the right thread to ask, but in the interest of speed, can anyone point me to a free (or cheap) piece of software that will allow me to compress photos?
I recently bought a new laptop, and the standard photo editing software on it is so basic it lacks the ability to compress to the right size for posting photos here. Plenty to post for the 1510s and 15-oughts if I can shoot and edit after work tomorrow.

Glad to see that you slipped it in on time @daviduk!

Here is a Half Groschen from Livonia (Vilnius mint) dated 1515 AD. The obv inscription is "MONETA SIGISMVNDI 1515" while the rev inscription is "MAGNI DVCIS LITVANIE". It is attributed as Huletski #2051HH, Ivan. #1S114-3, and Kopicki #3141. For anyone interested in learning more about Livonian half groschen from the late 15th or early 16th century, I highly recommend this book:

Tomorrow, we can start the decade of the 1500s. However, I hope to see some more coins from this current decade posted today.

DavidUK and Spence,

very nice coins from the end of the middle ages, the time of Thomas More, Luther and Erasmus; around the time religious problems started in Europe
.
Sorry for my ignorance: the names Groschen and Groat seem related. Are these members of the same family; comparable silver weight ?

I'm sure someone here can parse out the precise difference, but I use them interchangably.

Here is a Half Batzen of the German Duchy of Bavaria (Munich mint) dated 1506 AD. The obv inscription is "ALBERVS DVX BAVARI F 1506" and the rev inscription is "IVST9 NON DE RELINQVETR". I have it attributed as Schulten #144 and Hahn #7. No pumpkins on this coin.





Tomorrow we move back to the 1490's!

I think poster Antwerpen will like this one.
Brabant Florin St. Philippe, Antwerp mint. Duke Philippe le Beau, Type 3 1500-06. Not my coin, but I have the same type, similar grade, same source (Jean Elsen).

I know I'm breaking a rule, as this is not the photo of my coin, but am frustrated with my computer's lack of capability (and my lack of time to deal with it right now). Won't have time till Friday to deal with it, and those decades are flying by!

In brief response to the earlier question, yes, the gros tournois (France) I believe was the ancestral coin to the English groat, central European groschen, Polish groszy and Italian grosso (and others, I am sure) which are all related.

Multiple of the denier / penny / pfennig respectively. The medieval (14-15th c.) versions in my collection are in the 2.5 to 3.5 gram range ... just from memory.

SOunds like there are pros out here who could comment more authoritatively.

@tdzemia, yes the decades are flying by indeed! I look forward to more contributions from you this weekend.

Here is my Zincgroschen from the German Duchy of Saxony-Ernestine (Schneeberg mint) dated 1498 AD. The obv inscription is "FR I AL IO DG DVCES SAXONIE" and the rev inscription is "GROSSVS NOVVS DVCVM SAXONIE 98". As an early dated coin from Europe, it is attributed as Levinson I-391a.

For anyone interested in these early dated coins, you could check out this link:

I hope that we see some others in the next few weeks! Tomorrow, we will work on the 1480s.

Also from 1498 this Brabant toison d'argent dated 1498 (date between 11:00 and 12:00) in the reign of Duke Philippe le Beau (Philip the Fair), Antwerp mint.

Legend: INICIVN* SAPIENSIE* TIMOR* DOMINI* ANNO*1498

At 28 mm, about the diameter of a U.S. half dollar, it's a nice silver coin for the time.
