Boy the Mauritius Dodo coin brings back memories.  I was a lad when I ordered an uncirculated one directly from Spink & Sons (across the pond), got a tailless manx cat Island of Man coin from them also.  Gave the brother-in-law the Dodo coin, brother-in-law left the sister and the coin went with him. :'(  Gotta get another one.

I thought you were going to say you were around when the dodos were.  :D

They gave you a free cat too. I hope it didn't suffocate in that packaging during the long journey.
