    Just got here
  1. Thank you so much for your help. I will keep searching, but without knowing Hebrew, I'm afraid I'll never know.
  2. Looking at Numista https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces16923.html I see where the 3 years are represented but you're right JKK, the years don't match this one. In trying to troubleshoot the date, to me it looks like 5742. So maybe a reproduction? Because that would mean more like 1982, right?
  3. This coin was found in a second-hand/antique store. It was so different that it sparked our interest but now I cannot find anything on it to know what it is. Has anyone seen it or can anyone read it? It almost looks like a tool more than a coin with the notch in it and all the numbers written. Any thoughts?
  4. The history is really amazing. Because of your information, I was also able to find a summary of the company's old documents at https://digital.lib.ecu.edu/special/ead/findingaids/0469#container Thank you so much Just Bob and JKK!
  5. Wow, you both amaze me. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge! My 6 year old has decided to start collecting coins, so as I have encouraged all of his hobbies, I have jumped all in with this one as well. He will be very interested to hear your summaries and I hope to keep his interest alive for the sake of the newest numismatic generation. If you are interested in looking at another coin, here is one that was given to him yesterday. It says "Good for $1 in Merchandise" and has the date 1898 on it. Is there an interest for these? I see where there are trade tokens around like this, and I would love to know if it's from a specific store or town. I just can't find one like it anywhere. It has a nice shape. Thanks again for your responses! Jen and Sammy
  6. Can anyone tell me where this coin is from or what it says? It appears to be a dinar to me, but I am unable to find any picture online of this bird anywhere. Any help would be appreciated. My son is a new numismatic.
