NFL Wildcard football games are on in the background ... sadly, I have already lost 2 of the 3 Wildcard games (Indy was the only correct pick on my part so far ... Seattle and Baltimore let me down, so no new coins will be coming in the near future!)

Philly @ Chicago is starting as we speak ... I have bet on the Chicago Bears

Ooowww, playoff football is almost as exciting as buying a sweet archaic punch!

Aarrrrggghhh => the Bears' kicker hit the upright and Chicago lost on the last play of the game! (heart-breaker!)

Holy Crap => did any of you coiners happen to watch yesterday's epic NFL playoff games?

Wow, both of those playoff finals were amazing! (good times)

So, the upcoming Super Bowl is between the young-gun LA Rams versus the ol' horse-guided New England Patriots ... man, this should/could be an epic match-up (TBD)

Ummm, here are a couple of examples ... please feel free to post any appropriate examples (I like seeing other people's coin)

I hear ya, Enodia ... man, that was a real blemish on that first game, eh? (I was cheering for the Saints in that game, so I was mad and yelling at the TV screen after that missed pass-interference call)

Interesting! You don't see a lot of those on these boards. I'm wondering whether each of the individual punch marks is cataloged and the relative dating can be ascertained by any of the marks. Stkp

Thanks for your sweet example, quadrans (great coin)

 Thumbs Up

Stkp => the following is merely a Wiki-article which explains a bit about these coins and their markings ...

http://bharatkalyan97.blogspot.com/2016/03/indus-script-hieroglyphs-on-early.html

... yah sorry, Wiki is pretty much my speed when it comes to these off-the-beaten-track examples

Cheers

SIDENOTE: Here are a few examples found in the article (perhaps my elephant is similar, yes?)

The pictured elephant punch does look similar to yours. Is it my imagination or is the pictured punch to the left of the elephant a mouse? Stkp
