This is work in progress and I'll update my collection after I send coins to NGC for grading and get my grades.

So far I have two registry sets. One is for uncirculated markka coins and other one is for uncirculated prooflike markka coins.

Getting uncirculated markka coins can be challenging but getting them prooflike is even harder.

As I said earlier this is work in progress. I'll probably finish "normal markka set" in 1-2 years while prooflike set will never be finished. Here are pictures of my coins and at end of this post I have posted my NGC registry set link if you want to see coin pictures in full resolution.




1892 Markka



1907 Markka



1908 Markka



1915 Markka




Prooflike

1892 Markka



1893 Markka




These sets can be viewed in my NGC sets

Thank you for nice comments. There will be 6 more coins (and maybe upgrade or two) once I get them back from NGC. I hope one or two will get PL designation.

Collection updated. From my recent submission these coins ended in my NGC registry.

1865 S Markka MS62




1874 S Markka MS63




1890 L Markka MS64





Sadly no new dates for my prooflike set but 1893 L MS61 was replaced by MS65 PL.

It's been awhile since I have posted. I have managed to find one upgrade for my set.

1865 S Markka MS62 was upgraded to MS63.

I hope more good quality markka coins will be available in future auctions.

Forgot to add this coin. 1893 L Markka NGC MS64.
This coin was bought from my local coin club auction.
