hey guys I'm new here when I'm Scotty I have a pretty large collection of Thai coins and some older American coins I also have a few of these doubloons, I inherited them from my mom's stepdad who grew up and lived in Hawaii most of his life he also fought in the Korean War but he had these in this collection I was told by another collector that there could be possibly Colonial penny in there, but it's tough to tell from the pictures. I need to get better pictures I know that and get these catalogued as well but I was wondering if you guys could just take a look and let me know what you think

@ss, first welcome to CCF. Second, you are right that better pics would help us to identify what you have there. I do see a Roman bronze and a Byzantine coin in the group. I recommend that you take individual pics of the coins and then post each one in its own separate thread. I'm fine with you continuing to post here at the start, but I suspect that we will end up moving the majority of your threads over to the ancients subforum.

I'm seeing a bunch of Roman and Byzantine (and possibly Arab-Byzantine) coins from 3rd to 7th centuries AD, and a few very worn coins that look like they might (or might not) be from other periods. Nothing that looks new enough to be colonial.

Only one I could identify from those pics is the tiniest coin (bottom right in the last pic) - it's an AE4 monogram nummus of Leo I (Eastern Roman emperor, 457-474 AD), with the so-called "Greek" monogram. Nice find!

Text on the obverse on that last one seems to be " LICIN LICINIVS" which with that ALE mint mark Would probably make it a Lucinius I coin. You really should make a new post for each coin though.

The irregularly-shaped one appears to be a 7th century (or, less likely, late 6th century) Byzantine half follis (20 nummi), probably overstruck.

I knew I was in the right place lol! my dad was going off of a website he had saved years ago and then started talking about this method on YouTube he saw how you put them in a frying pan and they can shine again and then you can put them down in your bar as souvenirs. so I put the brakes on that right away, told him we should ask the experts first. thanks for all your help. We're still working on getting pictures and categorizing them and I also have a lot other coins it's a long process. greatly appreciate everything :)

Good thing you stopped it! I don't think there would've been much left of those if he did that, after that many centuries in the ground some of them are probably already barely holding together.
