328a60023
Rome: unidentified coin with 2-line legend COLON FELIX on obverse and OS|TIA (on 2 lines) on reverse; size: 19 x 20.25mm; weight: 2.8g. Ostia was the harbour city of ancient Rome, and may have been Rome's first 'colonia' (a Roman outpost established in conquered territory to secure it although the term came to denote the highest status of Roman city - possibly the intention of the legend on this coin). Translated from Latin "Colon Felix" may mean "Happy/Forunate Colony". Bearing semblance to early Christian/Byzantine coins & lacking standard Roman coin designs, this coin may date to the period when Ostia was an episcopal see (jurisdiction of a Bishop) from the early 3rd Century (St. Augustine's mother, St. Monica, was buried here in 387 CE), coinciding with the High Empire period (27 BCE – 305 CE) when the locale became a retreat for rich aristicrats, earning the name "Rome's seaside luxury resort" by archeologists. Of Jewish interest: the locale is home to "Ostia Synagogue" - one of the oldest Synagogues in the world and the oldest Synagogue in Europe, dating to the reign of Claudius (41-54 CE); it was in use as a Synagogue into the 5th century CE.

274a60027
Spectacular error (trial?) Israel: Hadassah Hebrew University Medical Center small state medal in silver, 1960/61 - standard 35mm silver issue with combination of minting errors: mis-stamped design on 1960 obverse (with English inscription in field) causing doubled-text at base; 'plug' marks in field (appear when medals continue to be produced from dies that have been invalidated by drilling holes in them - these are known on the "Liberation I" medal series commemorating Israel's 10th Independence Anniversary, 1958/61). On reverse spectacular brockage error with incuse image at 90 degree rotation of 1961 35mm 'Liberation I' medal obverse imprinted over the original Hadassah medal reverse design. Unless this piece is a trial or test piece, the end result of the minting errors has resulted in this medal weighing 10 grams less than the usual silver issue: size: 3.55cm; weight: 20.65g. Probably minted at the Zechovsky mint (1961 issue) as this piece does not say "silver" or "sterling" on the rim.

182a60029
Israeli error coin: Half Shekel (1996-97) whose first letter "Hey" in the Hebrew date has become the letter "Khet" instead, probably due to a filled die. The presence of a slight serif which extends beyond the left verticle line of this "Khet" indicates that the letter should really be a "Hey", as the letter "Khet" does not have such a serif. Weighs 6.55g (which is in the correct range of 6.35 - 6.55g for genuine Half Shekel pieces). In EF, and highly unusual. Included for comparison in the description are photos of a regular issued Half Shekel, placed to the right of photos of this piece.

Israel - 25 Mils, 1948; VF-EF; with traces of original luster; nearly all the dots around the edge are intact. The religious-minded may be interested to note that the published circulation figure of this issue - the only Israeli coin issued in 1948, following the State's establishment - of 42,650 is significantly similar to the number of Jews said to have returned from the Babylonian exile following King Cyrus' edict (per Ezra, Chapter 42 verse 64) - 42,360, of over a million Jews in exile (a paltry figure, so low that there were not enough Kohanim and Levites to serve in the re-established 2nd Temple - a reason given for the period's ongoing observance of Tisha Be'Av). Food for thought.
