NORWEGIAN FIND IN ICELAND ILLUSTRATES 1840S COIN CIRCULATION

Regarding last week's item about the old Norwegian coin
discovered in Iceland, Jurgen Sumod writes: "A Norwegian
coin from 1653 cannot have been struck at Kongsberg, but
in Christiania, present Oslo, as the Mint in Kongsberg at
that time not yet was established. Icelandic coins are
still imported, as they don't have their own Mint."
