Amazing coin, Mitresh.

It would be fun to know how this coin managed to remain pristine. Fell into a pile of cushions so thick it was retrieved only after the vacuum cleaner was invented? Imagine the maid's face when she found it, rapidly going from irritation to disbelief to supreme greed to a soft smile as she realises how much you'll like it. ;)

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