Fantasy UK crown

I liked this fantasy crown seen on eBay today.

eBay's global shipping postage cost of 13.04 rules me out though!  ::)

Reminds me of American "Hobo Nickels", that were made originally in the1930's.

A coin of Doriana Grey.

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

Whilst this on the face of it appears to be a 1844 crown that has been carved it is a modern fabrication in its entirety. You can buy them for a few pounds from that Chinese website.
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....
