Very nice, both!


I also received a Netherlands 1876 5 Cent piece that turned out to be AU Details, Cleaned. I had to return it.

Finally 11 days in I buy something, well 2 things.




Australian 1988 $10 Proof coin - in original box.

Everyone knew about the Aussie Bicentennial 50c, $1, $10 note and new $2. Some even knew about the $5 Canberra coin, but few knew about or bought the $10 silver proof coin. This is a nice piece and quite cheap. Its 20 grams of sterling silver too. It sold only a few more than the Gold $200 proof coin!

The coin shows the first three ships arriving in the Harbour with an advance party about to land at Botany Bay or Sydney Cove to plant the flag. Nice condition and great proof quality.

Also this beautiful Seychelles independence set. This is the 8 coin version without the Gold coin.




I have always admired these coin and designs and probably paid more for it than I should. The 10 Rupee coin is silver and I suspect the 5 Rupee maybe too. Low mintage and nice condition (Coins still in the packet). Also came with promotional literature and someone's typed notes on the coins and their background.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Well, yesterday, I ventured out to a coin dealer and snagged several hot potatoes , finally an 1839 head of 1840 braided hair cent for my date run 1839-1857! The only reason I couldn't find one so far until yesterday was because of the dinky mintage of only 200,000, and kinda a sleeper according to PCGS coinfacts. To me, this one grades VG-10.



But the obvious highlight was the completion of my Indian Head cents, finally found the 1909-S in around VF-20 grade for a good price. It may have had a older, light cleaning but has a good looking wood grain appearance.

Last Friday, bought two Dutch coin at the New York International Numismatic Convention; a 1908 5 Cents piece and a 1901 25 Cents piece.




A while back I had ordered a couple of coins from a Dutch dealer on MA-Shop that arrived this weekend as well. A 1973 coin set, a 1976 Netherlands Antilles 25 Gulden commemorating the American Bicentennial featuring the brig "Andrew Doria" which took on military supplies from the Dutch at Saint Eustatius (the American flag received its first salute ever from a foreign nation), and a 1979 Netherlands Antilles 25 Gulden commemorating the International Year of the Child.

Nice additions, NumisEd, Mrwhatsit and Princetane!

Princetane - I agree about that Seychelles set - I've always liked those designs. I've got loose examples of the 10c, 25c and 1 Rupee in Uncirculated but never had the whole set.

I was pleased to find this 1932 South African penny in the junk bin at my LCS yesterday. A few edge knocks but not bad for 25p - and with a mintage figure of only 260,000...

Netherlands 5 Cents, 1887.



This is one tiny coin. Only 12.5 mm diameter, smaller than a Three Cent Silver piece.
