Fig. 6.85. XVII century dates on Belgian copper plaques. The dates are transcribed as follows: J649, J677, J678, j679 and 1679. Mark the fact that this is the first place where we encounter the figure of one standing in the beginning, in the modern fashion. The dates to follow are: j684, j685, j685, j686, j690, J692 and J692. Taken from [1012], Appendices, PL II/3.

Fig. 6.88. XVIII century dates on Belgian copper plaques. The dates are transcribed as follows: j734, i735, i735, i735, j738 and i742. As a matter of fact, the first "digit" is written as the Greek letter X with a dot above. It is clearly visible that the date transcription had not yet been uniform by mid-XVIII century. Further one sees the date transcribed in a peculiar manner - jJ99. It most probably refers to 1744; however, the figure of one is transcribed as "j", the figure of seven as "J", and the figure of four resembles the modern Arabic 9. One also sees the following dates: 1745 transcribed as "j" (or the Greek A,), 7 (or handwritten Slavic G (J)) 45, followed by i752. Taken from [1012], Appendices, PI. III/2.

Fig. 6.86. Dates of the XVII and early XVIII century on Belgian copper plaques. The dates are transcribed as follows: J693, J693 or J695, J696, J697, j703, J706, J706, J708, J708, J709 and J709. Taken from [1012], Appendices, Pl. II/4.

Fig. 6.87. XVIII century dates on Belgian copper plaques. The dates are transcribed as follows: j7j0, j7jj, J7JJ, J7J2, i7j2, j7i2, j725 and j726. Taken from [1012], Appendices, PL III/l.

Fig. 6.89. A close-in of the date 1744 transcribed as jJ99, unusually enough by the modern standards - what with this being mid-XVIII century. Taken from [1012], Appendices, PL III/2.

Fig. 6.90. XVIII century dates on Belgian copper plaques. The dates are transcribed as follows: i (or j) 7-53, J754, j757, J758, J758, J7-59, J7-59, j760, i (or j) 762 and i (or Greek X) 763. Taken from [1012], Appendices, Pl. III/3.

Fig. 6.91. XVIII century dates on Belgian copper plaques. The dates are transcribed as follows: 1764 (the first digit is written in the modern manner), j764, j764, j768, j768 and j768 . Taken from [1012], Appendices, Pl. III/4.
