ID challenge No 1 (12 - 15/06/18)

Post by thefiggis » Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:30 pm

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.

Challenge No.1
Start: Tues 12-06-18
Thread opens for discussion: after 5.00pm on Friday 15-06-18

Submit your ideas by following ID Challenge Form in Quicklinks or click HERE

Object is a hammered silver coin. Scale has been omitted to enable a larger image of the coin which measures 11mm in diameter.

IDC reverse.jpg

Being the first of the challenges, this is something of a trial. Following your ideas on how long it should run, we've started with 3 days but if it's found that you'd like longer then we can adjust that. We'll see how it goes and if you have any ideas of how to enhance it then just shout.

Is it a coin? Lol.

Well coins are my least interesting subject simply because I know nothing at all about them. That's not true .... pretty good at spending them. So in all honesty gave this a wide birth. But then I thought the aim is to challenge yourself and it's a weak area so better have a go at least. Not sure it's totally correct but there are some good resembling parts so I'm going for

Silver Penny of Edward I, 2nd Coinage (Dublin Mint)

Found by trawling various images

Thanks for doing this guys it's good fun.
