Dad's Territory of New Guinea coins from 1938 - 1945

    Some shillings from 1936 to 1945 when my part of Papua New Guinea (on the New Guinea side) was then called Territory of New Guinea.

I have since been informed that cleaning any old coins will lose its value.  I cleaned mine that I made up for necklaces.  Any coin experts who wish to comment on their views and opinions and want to share it with public;  are welcome to comment but I do not access my Blogs every day so sometimes it might take a couple of days for me to approve.

In response to one of my Comment below from a Jimmy querying about the above coin I have inserted a couple of weblinks

I had these 3 shilling made up in May some time as necklaces and this is what is looks like when it's clean.
