Hi folks,

I finally finished posting all of my Medieval coins.

I have one major section left to do: Roman Republic. Of course, I still have smaller sections left also (Byzantine, etc.).

I've also been wanting to take better photos of the coins I posted early in my website. I'm not satisfied with the quality. I need to re-shoot them.

Medieval, Russia

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

1769 is a bit outside of what ought to be considered "medieval", I would say.

"on breast, coat (shield) of arms, containing figure riding horse(?)"

That figure represents St. George, spearing a dragon

"banner containing Russian legend ("5 Kopecs"?)"

Пять Копѣекъ

The banner indeed states the denomination. Besides other bits of history, this coin preserves some Old Cyrillic letterforms.

The word "Kopecs" is now written "Kопеек". The letter "yat" (ѣ) has been completely purged, and the hard sign (ъ) is no longer used in some of the words, after the Revolution of 1917.

"crowned letters"

That's the imperial monogram consisting of E II I  (Yekaterina II Imperatrix)


Cheers,

G/<

Hi vrt,

Thank you for all of the information. I am sure that other Forum members will find it useful. I really don't know much about Russian coins. My specialty is Italian coins.

Hi vrt,

I agree. Technically, it is a late Renaissance-era (pre-1800) coin.

However, I really didn't know what to do with those more recent coins. I didn't know where to place them. I didn't feel like creating a whole new separate section just for them. I think I have enough sections already. :)

For ease of placement purposes, I placed any European coin minted between 1000 and 1800 AD in the Medieval section of my website.

Hi folks,

The Microsoft Windows 10 photo editor app on my computer isn't working. It was working fine until Saturday. Yesterday and today, it is acting crazy. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, but it still isn't working properly. I can't crop any photos or add any pages to my website until I get this problem corrected.

In the meantime, maybe I'll edit my previous pages.

Hi folks,

I still can't get my photo editor to work. I'm trying everything, but it is still acting crazy. I can't stand all of this "down time".

In the meantime, I just edited all of the text in my Greek Italy pages. I re-formatted it and "cleaned it up".

Hi Akro and Nick,

Thanks for the compliments.

When I saw that coin for sale, it caught my attention. When I noticed that it is plated and not pure silver, it really intrigued me. I didn't have any plated Hyria coins. So, I figured that I would bid on it.

It is unusually nice for a Hyria issue. Those coins are typically poorly struck, and many of them have a "runny" look to them (probably the result of worn dies). The fact that this example is plated makes it very ironic. The plated one is nicer than many of the pure silver ones.

Keep,

I was just perusing your web pages. It's been quite a while since I'd done so.  I must say that the breadth of your collection is very impressive.  Also, I like that you've added text descriptions of the coins. Didn't you begin this project with just the tag photos for descriptions?  Are you nearly finished?

Hi Cara,

That is partially true. I actually began with minimal text descriptions. But, as I was going along, I installed several updates. With each update, I expanded the text descriptions.

Hi Cara,

Yes, I am almost finished. I'm about 90% done. In fact, my Roman Republic coins are the last major section I need to post. Of course, I still have smaller sections to post (Byzantine, etc.).

However, I am not satisfied with many of my earlier photos (Magna Graecia, etc.). I must go back and re-shoot (and re-post) those photos. So, I still have a lot more work to do. It is questionable if I will be done by the end of the year.
