Hi folks,

Today, I added 2 new pages to my website:

Modern World, Canada, Part 5:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/meepzorp/mw_canada_pt05.htm

Modern World, Canada, Part 6:

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/meepzorp/mw_canada_pt06.htm

These are the first photos I shot with my Android phone. I think I need to re-shoot one of my photos tomorrow. It is the first photo in my Part 6 page. Apparently, my new Android phone struggles with small coins, just as my old iPhone 4 did. And there is about 15 years of technology between them.

Should be 6180 and 6181, respectively.

For the other two, I can think of two possibilities: they may be magistrate's names (a lot of names start with Aris... / Isa... would leave Isagoras/Isagores or maybe Isaurikos looking at Münsterberg).

Another possibility is that they're understood as city epithets. Aris(ton) (the best) and Isa may refer to the value of Isegoria, political freedom & equality. There are some problems with both of these hypotheses of course (orthoghraphy and lack of parallels being the main ones), but maybe there's something I am overlooking.

Hi folks,

As I explained above, my old iPhone 4 died several days ago. For several years (since 2015), I had been using it to shoot photos for my coin project. Going forward, I will have to use my Android phone, which is only a few months old. However, since I am unfamiliar with it, it is taking time for me to figure everything out. Today, I shot my next series of photos.

When I attempted to transfer the photos to my HP laptop computer, I experienced a major problem. My computer wasn't recognizing my Android phone. The USB cable was connected to my computer and Android phone, but my computer kept telling me that it wasn't connected. I opened my file window, and it was the same reading. My computer was showing that my Android phone wasn't connected to it despite the fact that it really was. It was another one of those "technical glitch moments". I figured that it had to be something simple and/or stupid. But what?

I did several internet searches and came across about 15 different trouble-shooting websites for these types of issues. Of course, as usual, most of them are absolutely useless. I finally came across one technically-detailed and lengthy website that seemed to contain useful information. There was a big, long list of trouble-shooting techniques and sets of instructions to follow. I grinded through them one by one. When I reached the fifth or sixth set of trouble-shooting instructions, I finally hit "pay dirt".

It turned out that my Android phone had the "data transfer" mode turned off. It was blocking all data transfer. I don't know why. I assume that this is some sort of factory default setting. That is why my computer wasn't recognizing it, and it kept telling me that it wasn't connected despite the fact that it really was. As soon as I clicked on "enable file transfer", the photos appeared in my computer's photo app almost instantaneously, faster than you can blink your eyes. There they were.

I knew it was something simple and/or stupid. But the hardest part is trying to figure out which one of those simple/stupid things is actually the problem. It took me about 45 minutes of trouble-shooting, and I wanted bang my head against the wall, but it finally worked. I was able to successfully transfer my photos from my Android phone to my HP laptop computer.

I didn't process the photos yet. I will probably do that later today or tomorrow.

I found RN 1906 (it's on |Google Play).
The 4th quarter publication, pages numbered sequentially, with page 508 having plate XIII. 
It is from an article by V. Luneau: Deniers normands inédits du XIe siècle. pp. 306-316.  My coin is #19 (plate coin #8) and yours is #22 (plate coin #11).

PS: Thanks for updating Numiswiki with |Dumas Monnaies normandes. While I had found the text, I couldn't locate the plates. Now I have them. Huzzah!  Your coin is plate XX #15 (same drawing as that of Luneau) with some resemblance to #25 (photo of an "unidentified" coin) and mine is plate XX #13.

Nowe nieodnotowane odmiany trafiają się coraz rzadziej, więc cieszy mnie nawet niewielkie znalezisko.

Tę monetkę z oficyny S znalazłem już wcześniej:



RIC nie wymienia legendy LICINVS P AVG dla tego znaku menniczego, ale w przypisie podaje, że wprawdzie CG (czyli katalog kolekcji Gerina wydany w 1921 roku przez Voettera) odnotowuje tę legendę i to dla obu oficyn, ale autorowi RIC VII nie udało się tych monet znaleźć. A jak się nie udało, to ich w katalogu nie ma.

Voetter odnotowuje w CG tę legendę na stronie 389 pod numerem 26 - i jak zwykle okazuje się (co prawda po 100 latach), że to on miał rację. Legenda jest - i rzeczywiście dla obu oficyn. Niedawno udało mi się znaleźć również monetkę z oficyny P, wprawdzie niezbyt śliczną, ale wystarczająco wyraźną. Drobiazg, ale cieszy.

Dzisiaj kilka przykładów wykorzystania motywu Pax zapalającej stos pozostałej po wojnie broni.

Rosjanie powinni wypuścić ruble z tym motywem. Oni są tak radykalnie pokojowo nastawieni, że palą swoje uzbrojenie już w czasie wojny.

Wobec tego bym się nie przejmował, tylko robił swoje.

Też tak uważam. To ma być Pana przyjemność, a nie spadkobierców. Gdyby był Pan smakoszem i chodził regularnie po wyrafinowanych knajpach też by Pan przejadł spory grosz. Już nie mówię o tych, co potrafią przehulać (szampan, kobieta, kokaina etc.) niezłe sumki. Tak więc zbiór monet to nie jest jeszcze najgorsze dziedzictwo z punktu widzenia spadkobierców.
