Guessers too. I know way more about French coins than I did the other day. Too bad it's not French. Oh well, still learned a lot.

What countries are still in play after that longitude question paired with the Med. question. France was there but gone now. Gotta be Spain.

Was the issuing country of this coin Spain?

1. Not a commemorative
2. Minted before 1950
3. Minted before 1903
4. Minted in Eurasia
5. Minted before 1838
6. Minted before 1701
7. Issued in Europe

12. The issuing country lies primarily west of 10E longitude

As we move forward all my answers will be based on Numista. But not the crazy date questions

6 more Q's. Should be more than enough. I've been looking at Spain in Numista, for the date range there is quite a few varieties. So I will cut the date in half.

Was this coin around for the Battle at Monte Carlo where the English and Portuguese armies beat Spain?

I'm thinking our resident Canuk means The Battle of Montes Claros.

What's a loon to do when the internet gives you sketchy info. I just ran with this page. I thought it was cool to include Spain in the question. Still got an answer we needed. .

Someone needs to get you all out of this mess. What you know. Coin is from Spain Dated 1666-1700. Not much to go on

I have a couple of ideas for my question. I'm torn between asking if the coin has a precious metal content or asking if it is a commonly collected coin. Which do you think will get us any closer?

That kinda question would be up for debate. And have no yes or no answer. IMHO

Yeah. I could see that being the case. Ok. Does the coin have any precious metal content?
