Title: Hungarian Coin Inscription Help Needed!
Post by: dpaul7 on November 08, 2007, 05:37:34 pm
Hi!

Can anyone tell me what the inscription should read on the coin below?  (Janos Hunuyadi, Husz. 620).

Ob: +TEMPORE :dot: IO :dot: GVBERnATO(R)
Rev:MOnETA :dot: REGnI :dot: VnGARIE
That's Husz. 620
I can't see IO though.

Thanks Cibalia!

Regarding your Islamic coin:  Looks Ottoman to me... check my gallery, I believe I have a similar issue there!

Welcome back, dpaul7, where have you been?

That coin appears both with and without the IO. Here is one of mine without the IO:

Yours is a very nicely struck coin for the type, made of better grade silver than many as well.

I should pay closer attention. I hadn't realized that reebeezlee was commenting on and resurrecting an 11 year old post. Stkp
