Must post an Ireland coin today!

I have a bunch of Ireland issues, dating all the way back to 1766, although most of them are Euro era. With today being St. Patrick's Day, I decided to post one. I have selected a 5 pence piece of 1975 for today.
 My scan album shows 33 issues from Ireland in my collection- I had a friend who is from there that I would trade with, but have since lost contact with him.

Hope you enjoy the scan!

One from Every Country #2 - Andorra

Here is installment #2 in the One From Every Country chart. Today is Andorra, and it is represented by a centim from 1999.
It is the only item I have from Andorra.

Currency: 1944 Germany 5 mark

While my previous posts have been about coins, I also collect currency, and I thought I would post about one today.

This issue is for Germany, and was issued in 1944...by the Allies. After we (the Allies) liberated various parts of Europe, we printed money for them, as the Nazi issues fell out of use quickly.

This is one of those pieces.

What's more, my grandfather brought this home from his time in the service. So it's very important to me! I also have a French issue in the same style that I will show soon.

Thanks for reading!
