A bit of (break up) educational fun?

Post by keilg1 » Fri Mar 03, 2023 1:34 pm

For those of you immediately in the know, try not and spoil the learning for others.

Yup, coin presented itself to me and I just couldn't say no...

If you don't know what this is, begin searching the website as @messydesk and others keep recommending. If you don't you'll be relegated to brute force searching (manually) which can still yield a fruitful end - it'll just take longer.

Hints from others to help guide those who want to learn are appreciated, but don't tell them TOO much info?!

One hint I'll throw out: the coin is as old as the clock that has been telling the local residents of the time from the town square...

I'll not share the cracks on the obverse (or any of the others on the reverse) but they are quite interesting, too...

Great looking example, It looked familiar but I played the search game and found it in short order

And thank you for the "moral of the search story " Doc,,,, would be much easier to attribute stuff with search words I guess ..Not sure what one is better ... searching pictures till your eyes can't focus or just typing in the right search words .Funny that we all posses the sum of human knowledge in the palm of our hands , if you just know the correct search words :popcorn:

Well, I mean, if I couldn't figure this one out, I wouldn't be able to live with myself!
Too much of a hint? :lol:
And, yeah, great looking example! I've seen a few in MS, but too pricy for my blood... dang, another hint! :roll:

I love how you all are playing along and to hear your searching and numismatic acumen are increasing...

Good hint, @impairedsquirrel but this is true of SO many coins, eh?

Another BIG hint: If you don't recongnize this, you're failing to live the hobby to a degree that makes this a
"slam dunk" easy to attribute!
.

Is it a 'slam dunk' easy attribution? Perhaps if you've studied a certain list... OH, and according to SSDC, a SINGLE person (close to this posting) appears to the the 'first to the egg' honour...

Good luck with your hunt here - and out there!

Took a few minutes, but found it.

I know what this vam is, but I tried searching Break f break a and a few diff combos of this Vam, but I came up with nothing. So if I look foolish for asking, so be it I am old enough it does'nt bother me. ... What am I missing as far as search terms or ways to use the search function. I have missed something somewhere! Thanks in advance!

Search the wiki, not the discussion forums. They are not connected to each other.

Fun that we can find what we're looking for by a number of different routes. Each of us should learn the techniques (versus being taught them in a prescriptive fashion) in our own way...

Happy to say this is in a NGC-61 holder... even if I think it closer to a 62...

And, yes, found in Jolly ol' England...
