By what I can remember here are some of the words,

 

Pour, my, brother, with, hunger - not proper tense, arrangement, meaning etc.

 

Do not delay God's ???????????

 

More, Plenty of, a lot of Beer

 

Nice coin by the way too.

Medals to hunger emergency and Theuerung 1771/1773 and 1816/1817

 

In our time coined/shaped by the abundance, only few humans use thoughts to the terrible hunger emergencies of that time. It was reported at that time on the fact that in the Appenzellerland hungernden humans on the meadows dried up dug for grass roots. From the hunger time of distress even still another prescription of a May beetle soup is delivered. Maikäfer and many other insects have a high content of proteins and fats, which were partly also used by darbenden humans. The prescription, of me personally tested and after own Gusto refined, can be dispatched gladly on request. The soup mundet excellently. The today's hunger emergencies are far away our civilization and affect few contemporaries. According to some shocking pictures over hunger disasters in Africa, Asia or South America, which are radiated occasionally at the TV, the everyday life with its offer in excess gets us. We bite, push Genüsslich again into the fat sausage something bread after and rinse with appropriate Wohlbehagen with a cool Bierchen or a delicious wine.

 

These intending medals are able to point out perhaps the problems of the times of distress at that time to something. The fears and emergencies of the population at that time, the argument with over-powerful nature with its climatic fluctuations, all this on the medals one holds. In addition, the Huldigung at God, which the harvest benediction was to be thanked, we find in the pictures. In addition, there the usurers came on Gepräge, which enriched themselves at the distressed population shameless. Impressive also the tin medal, which represents 1773/1774 mouse troubles in Saxonia. Remarkably the putting medal, arranged of the well-known Medailleur T. Stettner, with handkolorierten inserts. For the coinages predominantly cheaper metals were used such as lead, tin or copper/brass. This may be perhaps also a reason that these medals do not find so many lovers, completely to injustice actually, if one regards the beautiful, styleful Design.

To Ant:

 

In case this info is still useful to you...

 

You appear to have a France 10 (dix) centimes coin from 1854. If the coin measures 30mm,

it is a 10 centimes. If it is 25mm, it's a 5 (cinq) centimes. If the mint marked appears to be a doubled B or "BB", it was minted in Strasbourg. If it is only one B, it was minted in Rouen.

 

Both the 5 and 10 centimes are bronze coins, equaling 1/20 and 1/10 of one franc respectively, similar to the U.S. nickel and dime. The 10 centimes was the largest bronze coin minted in France in that year. 50 centimes to 5 francs were minted in silver.

Ant,

 

I have one of those in VF shape obv/ VG-F shape rev , and according to the 2004 standard catalog of the 19th Century (I checked out of the library) it's worth about $5 or in that range, I looked it up about a week or so ago, myself.

 

I'm sorting through a bunch of 19th-20th Century french and german coins, I'm thinking of becoming a german 19th Century Thaler collector, since I got a good headstart.

Just picked up this British Historical Medal #650 (seller's picture)

commemorating George III's 50th year of reign. What attracted

me was the seller's comment that it was overstruck on a coin/medal

of 1803. It'll be fun to see if I can identify what that was!
