I did receive one new upgrade today - a nicely-toned PCGS MS66 Antietam commemorative with a CAC sticker. This will replace a PCGS MS64 Antietam I've owned almost 8 years.
Nice upgrade!

DEARBORN - isn't that nifty? I'm on the fence about the hologram but the design of the locomotive really caught my eye!

A new direction for me, I just won this weird beauty




This is an Ottoman Turkish 2 Zolota silverish (46%) coin. It apparently dates from year 10 of Abdul Hamid's reign, but not Abdul the damned from around 1900, his ancestor the first Abdul Hamid who ruled between 1774 and 1789.

So it dates from around the year 1784 and is pretty much the stereotypical belly dancing coin or a coin, women in the middle east wore in a headress.

This is apparently the guy who wore a necklace of human ears around his neck in the Catherine the Great miniseries on TV. Probably not true, but this sultan lost a lot of the Ukraine and Crimea to the Russians via Orlov and Pomtemkin.

A Zolota was 30 para or of a Kurus, so 133.33 Zoloty = 1 Lira, so this is 1 Kurus basically.

The date you can see at bottom is AH 1187 (1773/74) and the script on the other side has Abdul Hamid 10 of his reign, which is the regnal year.

Looks cracked as these were very thin apparently and shaped like a wafer. A few weeks ago I showed a Beslik from 1832, this is even older and takes my Ottoman collection back beyond the usual machine made WW1 keepsakes of the 1900s era.

I am bidding on another Zolota tonight and a Yuzlik (100 Para or 2 kurus) from a slightly later era (Selim III 1793 - 1808).

I love COINS!!!

I also enjoyed the historical context you have included.
