EL SITIO NO. 22 PUBLISHED
The E-Sylum (3/26/2017)
The first 2017 electronic bulletin “El Sitio” of the Instituto Uruguayo de Numismática in Montevideo, Uruguay, was published this month. This issue contains 26 pages with three numismatic articles about different topics and information about new coins, banknotes and events.
The first article, “La estancia La Concordia y sus fichas de esquila”, by Horacio Morero Ferrero, is about shearing tokens. La Concordia was a historical ranch in the Mercedes Department, on the banks of the Uruguay River. The company, associated with the Pranges family, was registered in Liverpool, England.
The second one, by the Spanish numismatic Pedro Damián Borrego, speaks about the circulating money in the Virreinato del Río de la Plata during XVIII century.
The last article, written by Sebastián Aguilera, tells us about a particular Notgeld - emergency money- issued in the Bielefeld city, Province of Westfalia: the beautiful 1 goldmark of 31.4 mm of diameter.
