Anyone know when the french revolutionary calander started, I found a une centime coin dated
L'an 7 in fair condition today, my first one centime from this period. cheers
Only other coin finds were a louis x111th double tournois and a jersey 1/24th of a shilling 1888.
but I also found a large piece of hard greyish metal about 60mm diameter and 6-8 mm thick, not steel but too hard to scratch with a finger nail. maybee a large roman coin? Twisted Evil Idea
