Nice one Andy. I've mooved it to its own thread ........ it deserves a home of its own. These are difficult to get.

It's often said not to buy junk from ebay - but every now and again you find a good one (even if not so nice as your piece)

Thanks for posting - without the earlier coin this would still be sitting in the tin :)

Can I borrow your memory, andyg? I would never at any time ever have remembered...

If you can spot a coin with a little bit of data on it, specially as unattributed on ebay or in junk trays of dealers who are not specialised in the field, you are more likely (than not) to hit jackpot.

Absolutely true, all my recent rare finds have been cheap bargains because nobody noticed  what the coin was, but i did!
