OK! I am figuring out what to post. It will be late this evening at the latest. Something which can attract a number of people to post.
Hopefully I can get off the bench.

OK, Houston, we have ignition.

For your viewing pleasure, a token of Ivugtut in Greenland, a 10 Kroner dated 1922:




The point scheme is as follows:

1. (2 points) Exact country is Greenland, anything in Greenland.
(1 point) An approximate country is Denmark, since Denmark controlled this area at the time.
2. (2 points) Exact date is of course 1922.
(1 point) An Approximate date is 1917-1927.
3. (2 points) Exact denomination is 10 Kroner.
(1 point) An approximate denomination is any denomination in a whole number of Kroner.
4. A bonus point will be awarded for the most unusual (in my opinion) partial match.

The winner will be announced in the evening of the 14th, or the next morning if I am unable to do so that evening.

I'm fairly sure this is the best I can do:

1922 Denmark 25 Øre




Does being shot count as unusual?

So that's five 3-point coins so far, correct?

Yes, five 3 point coins. And yes, being shot is unusual, now that I think about it. Unless you just did it, which might be considered cheating.

Huh, I've never seen a Greenland coin before! Good one!

I know I have some Danish coins from the early 20s. I'll see what I can dredge up.

@jbuck, a point is still a point! Better than a kick in the pants.

Yup.

It could have been two. I thought I had something from 1922 photographed, but I do not.

Well, I never!

If I was going to, it wouldn't be a key date.
