Colonia imitations 936 - 1039

These coins were copies of the deniers (Pfenningen) from Cologne, starting with emperor Otto I. Professor Peter Ilisch asumes that they were made in the area of Tiel and Nijmegen. There is is complete overview of all areas in the "jaarboek voor munt- en penningkunde 1997/98" , including background information. The coins hereunder are mentioned in chapter 8 of this book. Characteristic for these imitations from Nijmegen is the form of the letters; in German language: "drei-ecks keilen", in Dutch: zandloper and in English: hourglass-shape.
Many variations exist; in fact I have never seen two identical coins.

Thanks to Arie van Herwaarden for some of the pictures. www.bonatiele.nl
