    Another picture, this in hand of the actual coin, the object is a stylized version of the Taku and was a gold measuring weight:

    Just a couple of ancients. The Roman Republic Denarius and the Athenian Tetradrachm.

    1798 third guinea ex Terner. I'm currently in two minds whether to crack it out of its 64 slab once I have sufficient gold to rearrange and put it in the trays or go for a better one. At least one of the 63s is superior in my view, but I guess the name added a point. Anyway, apologies for the through plastic image.

    An Elizabeth I quarter angel with mm. crescent , the reverse over scallop. Cracked, but excessively rare. Maybe one more about.

    An Edward IV half angel with mm. cinquefoil over pierced cross. Either 4 or 5 known.

    Henry VII angel with mm. Anchor, inverted on the obverse. This coin marks the division between the two styles of cross ends on the spear, being neither one type nor the other.

    Rob, your point on the first is well made - about the grading. I suppose that if you are fanatical about it, you could seek out a slightly better specimen but if you asked some of us would probably say that yours is nice regardless of the Terner provenance. Thanks for sharing!

    Love that Milled British (1830-1960)
    Well, just Love coins, period.

    It's not a bad coin and I'm not against keeping it, but selling still slabbed would satisfy someone from both camps - one that prioritises number over contents, and one that thinks conversely, i.e. me. Any additional funds raised could then be put into something else. Given the hundreds of gaps still to be filled, every little helps.
