Nine of them in the one whole.I have just had them sitting in a cupboard with all my other finds from over the years.I just googled the gothic florin and see that they use Roman numerals to indicate the dates so will have to brush up on my r.n now.

There is no sign of a date which is strange.Maybe someone on the forum may be able to throw some light on this.
the date is in Roman numerals
look for or similar.

Thats good of you ANT1967,much appreciated.I think some of the dates are 1852-3-4-7-8 and the others will need a bit of a clean up to tell.Even with a magnifying glass the ol eyes are struggling.
