Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

A silly fantasy. Anderson seems to love them. Long ago, it has been decided that Lundy is UK territory that can only use UK coins.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

You are behind the times, Aditya. I already posted them here on 20th August.  :P

The issuer of the original Lundy coins was convicted for violating the Coinage Act of 1870,
the coins/tokens were declared illegal.

Why are these pieces not illegal? - Maybe since they are issued in Nowhereland, while Coles
Harman intended to use them for payments on "his" island.

Here's the reply I got from the official Lundy web site:

Dear Philip,
 
The "Lundy Coins" you mention are unauthorised & totally spurious - that's the first we've seen of them, but maybe others will enquire as well.
 
Regards,
 
Reg Tuffin

If moderators thinks it is appropriate to change the subject as :

Unauthorised & spurious  coin of Lundy.

Never thought to look him up. Nice to see who was emailing me. He does look like a Reg.

Must visit Lundy some time. I love little islands. Herm (a dependency of Guernsey) was my favourite.
