I dont know much about it. Great condition in front but the back is abit harder to read. I do know that Stephan IV was the king of Hungary from 1163-1165.

    This is some sort of replica or medal. There is no way this could be a coin from that time period.

    It is a coin. I also have some from the 1300's.

    See, I knew others would have some of these as well. Im impressed with your coins AR8.

    Yes, those are gogeous. How long have you been collecting?

    Nice. Would you by chance know of Charles Robinson the third? Hes from Texas and was an Historian and author. You can find him on Wikipedia by his name.

    TT the reason I questioned this item is that based on your picture it looks too well struck and also looks to be perfectly round like it was struck in a collar. It also looks fairly thick. If you look at AR's pictures you may see the difference in strike quality and the pictured coins are considered EF. The coins are bronze, about 27.6 mm in diameter with one that weighs 3.14 grams and the other 2.45 grams. If you could take you item out of the holder and weigh and measure it that would help. Keep in mind that many replicas of classic coin types were made for educational displays and are not considered fakes.

    Thank you for this information. Ive posted more pictures of this coin for better viewing but as far as weighing it, Im currently shopping around for a scale.

    You can find some good condition used Ohaus scales at good prices with some searching if you are not in a hurry. Size calipers in plastic are cheap and safer than the metal ones for use on coins.

    Are the digital ones acurate?

    Digitals are very good. The last time I used one was back in the 1970's and it was very accurate even back then. If you get one you may have to keep a weight tester handy. In my case we kept a silver dollar coin with the scale and used it to test the accuracy before each use since the batteries would weaken gradually causing the accuracy to suffer. This may not be a problem with newer scales. I like my old fashioned Ohaus because I can also do specific gravity tests with it.
