    Flea Market Finds

    Went to the local flea market today to get outta the house and waste time in some nice weather, and ended up buying too many coins :-p. One Vendor had some Roman coins, so picked up 2 cause I'm a sucker... Pulled 2 of the better conditioned ones, looking for some identification help:

    Tried to find 2 you could make out some writing on it... Any help identifying would be appreciated, or if theres a website to look on?

    Posted too soon. First one appears to be Poland 1661. "IOAN CAS REX" on the obverse with the weird polish eagle thing on the reverse. Well, hopefully the 2nd one is actually Roman...

    they used to have a partial inscription search there where you would just type the letters you can make out nbut i cant seem to find it on their site now,you can do much better than those coins pretty cheap for the common ones, just beware there are ALOT of fakes out there

    Much appreciated! This is my 2nd attempt at "Roman" coins, I just go for the cheap ones basically. Realize that I need to better educate myself before I go for my 3rd try though. Appreciate the site!
