Hi can anyone help a Swedish guy with some English history? I have a pair of old Etchings and I cant understand what the signs on the backside means? How do I attach photos here?

You can't attach photos here; you need to upload the images to a site like Photobucket, or Flckr, or Google's Picasa (all free) and then put a link to the image in your post.

Hi oki I understand but I am not an computor guy so I dont know how to do it. All I ned help with Is to look on what I think Is the original price on the backside on the etching and maby try to read the signature. Is there anyone out there who think he can help me then I could email a couple of pictures. I think the etchings are from 1787 and I dont know the english from that time.

Not our bailiwick, really, but I've moved your post to the Research section on the off chance someone can help.

Prior to 1971 English money was written as pounds + shillings + pence that may be what is confusing you, see:
