Nice to see you, @EddieDiz, and nice coin!

Interesting that Hungary was still minting silver denars this late. I think the last date in Poland was 1624.

More super contributions, @t360.
I noticed a few Liege coins sneaking in recently ... what sparked your interest in those?

These coins have a lot of mintmarks and variations.
Even contemporary fakes exist:



Just some examples, I do not want to overload this topic....
To find a correct variant I use this catalog:

Every year, hundreds new variants are added....

Thank you. It's wonderful to be able to show these to people that appreciate the coins and the history of the era.

I just came across the Liege coins from time to time and thought they were historically interesting.
