EXPLANATION ON OLD COIN The Courier is indebted to Mr. Robert Douglass, of Greensboro, for an explanation of the abbreviated Latin inscription on the geld coin brought to the office one clay last week by Mr. G. Elwood Stanton, of Randle man Route 1, which we give in full. It will be remembered that the coin bears the date, 1757, and the fol lowing inscription: "Josephus I. D. G. Port, et Alg. Rex." Mr. Douglass' explanation, which is quite interest ing, follows: "The inscription is in Latin, which was generally used on coins of the period mentioned. The inscription filling out the abbrevia tions is 'Josephus I Dei Gratie Portugal is et Algrave Rex.' Trans lated into English it is 'Joseph 1st, by the grace of God, King of Portugal ami Algarve.' The coin is therefore Portugese and probably fDund its way to this country from Brazil, which was at that time a Portugese colony, Joseph 1st in Portugese spelled 'Jose' and pronounced 'Hosay' was King of Portugal from 1750 to 1777 Algarve pronounced 'Algarvay' is the southern part of what we now know as Portugal. It was, however, held by the Moors for sometime after the rest of Portugal hr.d been con quered, in honor of the event the king3 of Portugal called themselves 'King of Portugal and Algarve.'
