I just ran a check to ensure that I hadn't stitched you up with this, fortunately, mine  still resides in the cigar box of shame.

I don't believe you are capable of doing that!  :-*
I forgot to mention the die fault on the reverse.
I got many very interesting pieces in the lot  8)
This piece just happened to be v disappointing. :'(

Everything is relative.

If you have shallow pockets and want a shooting thaler, this is the perfect piece. If you get it in a lot, everything depends on what else you got and what was in the lot.

I'd wash it in lukewarm soapy water and dry well to see if any dirt comes off. An acetone treatment may also help.
