This coin has been through a war!
Quote this message in a reply
I found this coin at my local park. There used to be a mansion on the grounds that was destroyed in wwII. It's obviously been through an explosion and fire. You can't hardly read it and the other side is worse. It's an 1864 silver Thaler (like a dollar) the front should have a bust of King Wilhelm. It still gave out a beautiful signal. The second photo is what it should look like.

What a piece! It's actually quite cool, and to have the date showing makes it even more unique. I think it's actually MORE of a showcase find BECAUSE of the fire damage Yes Awesome pull Wink

Great coin!
I found a Thaler last year. Mine is a 1869A but in terrible shape.

Mine was hit by a Trencher I believe.

that's still a pretty cool find, at least you can make it out a bit. And after all, silver is silver. good find.
