I just bought a coin yesterday that I thought was dated 892 AH (corresponding to 1487 AD), but turned out it's just the type of 892 (and the actual 89x date had the last digit off flan).

Then again, for all I know the type had actually only been made for that one year (and/or a sub-year period across 892/3 AH); I'll try to post it in the Ancients forum, and if we're still stuck at 1487 in a month or so I'll post it here anyway as a bump (of course, if it turns out to actually be a single-year type, I'll post it here immediately).

Admittedly, it only cost $7, and it's an interesting coin either way. I'm sufficiently happy with the purchase - I just hoped that it would actually advance the thread (which would've been really cool).

I wish you the best of luck @petrus! Here is what @numisrob had to say about finding a LCS in Rome:


Quote:
I've just come back from Rome, and I visited the Vatican City. The Post Office inside the Vatican Museum complex (not the post office on St Peter's Square to the right as you leave the Basilica) gives Vatican 50c coins in change! Unfortunately to get there in the first place you have to pay the 16-euro entrance to the Vatican City. And, once inside the museum complex, it's important to visit the Post Office before going on to the Sistine Chapel: if you ignore the sign to the Post Office and follow the tourist route through the complex to the Sistine Chapel, you will just go right out after visiting the Chapel and there is no way to get back to the Post Office! Incidentally, the Vatican Coin & Stamp Museum is next to the post office and is worth a look - sets of practically every Vatican coin issue are on display.
