Widow's Mites 1



These little pieces are actually Widow's Mites (Lepton).
Alexander Jannaeus
King of Judea 103 -76 B.C.
Jerusalem Mint 95 - 76 B.C.
Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow put more into the treasury than all the others. For all of them contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on." (Mark 12:41) The lepton was the smallest coin in Jerusalem during christ's lifetime. Biblical scholars believe this type is the Widow's Mite.

Hi,


You better watch the coin on the right, it looks to have active bronze disease.

Yes, the one on the right has active bronze disease, if you don't know how to treat it , go to www.gringgottscoins.com, it is a non-commercial site, but there is a paper posted there about bronze disease. If you don't act, you may lose the coin in a few months.

Too many coins - not enough time
