ID Challenge No 4 (15-18/08/18) Updated

Post by thefiggis » Wed Aug 15, 2018 5:58 pm

What ho,

This is an occasional series of threads designed to get an ID on an item, but with a difference. Here, you will have the opportunity to offer your opinion but you won't be influenced by other views as you won't be able to see them. The thread will be locked and you will have three days to submit your ID by using the ID Challenge form (link below). At the end of the allotted time the responses will be collated and put into a now re-opened thread for discussion.

The reason for the challenge format is to give everybody a chance to do their own research and come up with an idea without outside influence, the need to get in first, or indeed feeling that there's no need to offer an ID because someone else has already done it. Everyone is on an equal footing.

While we do of course learn from other people (and long may that continue) and the ID section will continue to run as normal,there's nothing like your own research to give a better, fuller understanding and this series should help us all with that.

So, we hope you'll enjoy the ID Challenge and that you get a lot out of it. You have three days to submit your ideas so no rush; take your time and if you change your mind then just submit another form.
==================== Start:Wednesday 15-08-18
Thread opens for discussion: after 5.00pm on Saturday 18-08-18

PLEASE NOTE that this coin has not been formally identified so there's no point in asking what the "answer" is at the end. The "answer" is whatever the concensus is and if you don't agree, then say so and discuss it ::g

Answer form available HERE

Good luck, and remember to send a pound or two of jelly beans to Blackadder43 whose coin it is ::g

There are jelly beans, Phil, and don't let him tell you otherwise. In fact, they are widely used as currency in the mod forum but, strangely, only ever seem to go in one direction: towards the jelly bean black hole which is BA43. ;;z

A-a-any road up, for anyone who doesn't have it in their bookmarks, this is a decent resource for narrowing down the late Roman coins which seem to make up the majority of finds.

Thanks and well done to all who had a bash ::g
