The Best of Type!


1280_-1286_Alexander_III_AR_Penny.JPG

Add your superb coins to the BOT Gallery. Only the very best example of each type (RIC number for example) with above a four star rating after 10 votes will stay in BOT. A challenge begins when two coins of the same type are listed. The highest rated coin after both have 10 or more votes wins. Challenge defeats and coins with a four star rating or below will be removed from the gallery. If your coin is posted here, you get bragging rights and perhaps even a higher price if you sell (list it as "Best of the Type in FORVM's Gallery!").

Superb and Masterpiece Portraits Gallery


Vesp_141_savoca~0.jpg

A superb portrait appears that it could come to life. Many or most coin portraits actually lack this trait. A masterpiece portrait not only appears that it could come to life, but also makes an impression of what the subject was like, what they were thinking or how they felt. It's not about the grade; it's about the art.

Unlisted and Unpublished Coins


20170822_163945~0.jpg

Post unpublished coins to identify them to collectors, scholars, authors, and publishers. Also post coins unlisted in major references but perhaps included in a scarce publication.

Plate Coins


Vlasto_140~0.jpg

Please post your coins illustrated in popular references, and scholarly books or articles here. Also, please post your coin if it is the exact coin (not the same type, the exact same coin) described by a reference, even if the coin is not illustrated. In addition to the usual attribution, description, weight, and diameter of the coin, please identify the book, its author, the page and/or plate number, and the item number.

Lead Seals


pbsealCSIICSG~0.jpg

The vast array of ancient lead seal types makes their attribution and study complex. It also means there is still tremendous opportunity for new discovery. While there are some published collections, most references are rare and expensive. Most online references for seals are not in English. This gallery is intended to be a useful resource for the attribution and better understanding of ancient seals.

AR parvus; .20 g., 10.16 mm. max., 180°

Obv: Four-part shield (Árpádian stripes and eagle), S-V-R above and flanking.

Rev: Cross with four crowns, π between lower cross arms.

The type was struck in 1387-1427 (Huszár, Pohl, Unger, Frynas and Gyöngyössy, although it terminated in 1410 per Engel).

The parvus (also called the “small denar” fillér or pankart) was struck with an average nominal fineness of 0.353 silver. Because of many worn out and counterfeit coins it was pulled from circulation after 1427 (per Huszár). Although not specifically discussed in this context in Engel, the parvus must have experienced the same rampant debasement as the denar did.

Huszár/Pohl rarity 4; Unger rarity 5; Frynas rarity C. Unrecorded privy mark.
