There seems to be some "confusion" regarding what truly constitutes a 492 variety, as your specific coin is pictured on the Menorahcoinproject.com (MCP) website as a 493 (last row of the Obv. #1 coins). 

Your coin is certainly stuck well enough and the surfaces clean enough to show the cross/chi, if it was actually there.

I passed on several supposed 492s before buying this one, as many turned out to be either 493 or 494 varieties.  The only way I could feel completely confident was with a coin that clearly showed the cross/chi visible, below the diadem.

Thanks. I'll probably change the attribution then. I'll get one eventually!

It's been a long time since I posted to this thread, although I have added one or two coins to my gallery in the interim. 

But I just finished shooting and uploading eight new images of coins I've picked up over the past few months.

The images added are of Hendin varieties:  488, 490a, 498, 499, 501, 638, 649/50v, and 653v

Enjoy !!!

I was just perusing through your gallery of wonderful and beautiful coins. I aspire to create a collection of Judean coins like the one you possess. Slowly but surely, I'll get there. My only problem is I get distracted by all the beautiful Greek and Roman coins out there that are begging me to buy them. You've got a great collection! Keep up the good work!

Just got around to shooting and uploading my most current additions, purchased at the recent Bay State Coin Show in Boston a few weeks ago.

Added, are additional examples of Hendin varieties:  489, 490, 490a, 500, 506, and 507

All of these are "duplicates" of pieces of which I already own examples, but I've decided to do so because I am seriously considering entering a display at the 2010 ANA Midyear Convention to be held in nearby Forth Worth.  By adding duplicates, I can do an "obverse / reverse" display.

Enjoy.....

Well....it certainly has been a LONG time since I posted to this thread.....I almost forgot it even existed.

I've posted lots of additional coins since late 2009.....the last two (H518 and 537) just a short while ago....pieces I just won this morning from CNG's most current e-auction.

I also have a Herodian piece on the way from an overseas dealer.  I'll shoot and upload that one after it arives.

I finally got around to shooting and uploading a few recent purchases (and one or two not so recent!) to my Judaean and Roman Emperor galleries.


For the Judaean pieces:
•   Hendin 502 (just arrived today from Israel)
•   Hendin 487 (purchased back in March 2009)
•   Hendin 496

For the Roman Emperors:
•   reshot my Otho AE29
•   reshot my Vitellius As
•   new Galba As (purchased in 2010 and just freed from its slab)
•   new Trajan As

I'm using some time off around the Christmas holiday to finally shoot some purchases I made at the Whitman Coin Show in Baltimore this past November.  I've added a few to my gallery already and hope to get the rest up within the next day or two. 

Images to be uploaded include additional examples of the following Hendin varieties:  639, 640, 642, 646, 648, and 476

In addition, I'm probably also going to create a new gallery with coins representing the Seven Churches of Revelation.  I was able to pick up examples of Philadelphia and Laodikea while at the Baltimore show.  I've had a few others lying around for a while that I need to pull out and shoot.

The link to my galleries in in my "signature", below.  Enjoy.

For some reason, I tend to go long stretches without updating my gallery with my new purchases.  I recently went through my box and found about a dozen or so coins I purchased within the last year but never uploaded.

So over the next week or so I'll be uploading a bunch of images, including Herodian and Procutorial pieces, some Mattathias Antigonas and other Hasmonaean pieces, and there are even two tiny Yehud silver pieces I'll be adding.

I hope you enjoy them.

PS...I just uploaded these three a few minutes ago......

I have long admired your Herodian and Procurators gallery.  Absolutely amazing quality and variety.  I'm glad you continue to add your new coins!

I was finally able to add a "1/8th denomination" specimen of Antipas to my collection.  These little buggers are difficult to find half-way decent.

Excellent addition, I had my eye on this one as well. Glad it made it into your collection.

I finally got around to shooting and posting a few more pieces I found in my boxes.  There are four pieces from Mattathias Antigonus and a little lepton of Hyrcanus I.


....only about 10 or so pieces left to do....at least for now, until I find more.

Great additions, I especially like the 8 prutot, very nice examples.  Your motivating me to start photographing more of my Judaean coins.

WOW....I had completely forgotten about this thread until I was paging though all the posts a few days ago and came across it.  And I was shocked  Shocked to see that is has over 12,000 views.  Hopefully at least some of you have found it useful.

In the 3-1/2 years since I last posted, I've uploaded dozens of new images, including three just within the last few days (H-522, 524, and 530).  I still have a small handful to shoot yet and then upload.

I went through my Judaean collection piece by piece and found a total of seven coins that had not been photographed and uploaded to my gallery.  All seven have now been photographed and uploaded.

Now it's on to my Byzantine anonymous folles to do the same.

And then I have several new galleries I want to start for various other series.

I finally added a piece of "hacksilber" to my Judaean Collection.

While they are offered with some regularity most of the pieces offered are European (e.g., Iberian) in nature.  I wanted a piece that was found if not specifically in Israel, then at minimum in the Levant.

Fortunately Joe had one for sale a few weeks ago which met those criteria, and I was able to purchase it.
