    Nicos i think it's illegal to keep those found in the ground. But if you buy them from an antique store it's ok.

    I collect coins also.
    My oldest one is a British half penny found in my garden from 1697's
    I also have a Greek 1869 coin.
    Militaria wise my oldest is 1914, but i have my eyes on a crimean medal so that might change

    The first coin is not French is is Austrian.
    It is a 17 kreuzer, the year on the coin is the year it was minted.
    "Kb"is the mint mark, so you have a 1754 kb minted 17 kreuzer.
    The other coin I know nothing about.
    Im looking for an a case to an 1936 olympics medal and a case to entry to austria medal. pm me If you have any spare.

    Wow, some really nice militaria and non-militaria items! I especially like Stuka's M1862 metalhelm in post 20.

    My oldest collectible, that I can think of, is an original land deed for a plot of land in Lancaster, PA. It dates to March 1776:

    My oldest piece of militaria is a French Gras Bayonet, dated September 1876:

    With the runner up being a M1881 US Officer's helmet:
