The kerning of the Pearse mural hurts my eyes.
Nothing pretty about that mural...especially the blood coming from the bottom of the word Peace.

Starting in post #102 we had a discussion of the clover leaf symbol used on these political issues. Here's an older image struck on the reverse of an 1883 Florin...the oldest coin to date. This was offered by Whyte's in a recent auction, but didn't sell. I would have bid on it but wasn't aware of the auction until after the fact.

You should have asked about it, some auction houses sell unsold lots at 10% under estimate.

I have done that in the past but had no success. I did go online earlier to see if I could find the auction the coin was in but haven't found it yet. I'm almost positive it was Whyte's in Dublin that listed it. I'll have to spend a little more time looking
