This 1 ore shows an under type clearly by the letters "OCH" at 8h.


The letters "OCH" appear at 11h on this 1718 daler.


I noticed that your 1 ore shows "bundles of arrows" similar to those at the base of the wreath on this 1718 daler.

Hopefully this little tangent has not polluted the time line too much by showing a 1720 and a 1718 coin while we are on 1719.

A small diversion from our timeline and I learned something today. I'm sure @jbuck won't mind!

Some of my 1718 One Daler Silvermynt from Sweden. Emergency coin struck during a period of hard economic crisis.

Interesting coin!

At a time when big hair (or wigs) were the fad, Charles must have been quite a maverick.

Not as nice as @numisrob's, but here is my Ha'penny from Great Britain dated 1718 AD:

Well, he was in the field more often than not. I'd guess he didn't have time for sissified stuff like wigs.

There's a medal issued for his return from exile in 1714.

It reads "Was sorget Ihr doch? Gott und Ich leben noch". (What worries you so? God and I live still).

He was killed in battle the same year that t360's coin was minted.

Thanks for the history.
Yes, with a 20th/21st century mindset, we forget that it wasn;t so long ago that sovereigns led their men into battle.

Go back another few centuries and we can find battles where multiple sovereigns (dukes, counts, rarely kings) were slain.
