Oh good, he won't have to. I've been doing this long enough that I find it hard to believe that there are people who don't know Dave, even if just as that strange man who sells coins.

My appologies for being so ignorant I wish I had all of your years of Knowlage, wisdom and re-enactment years under my belt. Unfortunatly I do not. It was a genuine question, yes I have heard of Dave (Grunal Moneta) didnt know that he produced what I was after though, although I do now. I shall certainly think about posting a question on the forum again obviously it isnt ment for such elimentary questions which everyone should know the answer to and should be reserved for high brow intelectual chat . |( and now :)

You'll need to grow a thicker skin than that in this game, we were being helpful and this posting just comes across as petulant... :roll:

Thicker skins all round then.

I would ask if they were available to pick up at TORM.... Just slightly worried that I should know who supplies them :)

I though the French coins Dave had to sell were for the Agincort and Lancastrian France period (1420-1444ish).
I know these would have been used past this period in England for a while but I'm not sure how seriously they would have been considered "legal" tender by either Dauphinist regions or once the English had been driven out of all but the Calais Pale.
Now if Dave is making French coins that do fall into the 1450-1500 period I'd be interested because I'd be adding some more to my collection.
Which reminds me that I must retrive the tournier that I slipped the Beauforts to "pay" for my entry into Gloucster Cathedrel.

Hi, I do make French coins -Gross Tournois and tournois deniers of Charles VI C 1415, which would have circulated extensively and for fairly long periods due to their high silver content. In England by 1485 there were still coins circulating, quite extensively, dating back to 1279. In France the majority of the city coins were very base and tended to be local curremcy unlike the Royal coinage which was 'acceptable' fhrough-out
If anyone wants a particular coin made pm me or call me on 01526 320487
