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

I'm thinking TL.

 Reminds me of the monogrammed love tokens that are impossible to read. I always wanted to give my wife one, but I'm not sure if I ever saw one with her initials. Probably have but just can't tell. What's a husband to do?

Umm. You give one with the initials of your wife to yourself. You can give your wife one with your initials. It would be hard to find one with BM24, but any jeweller worth his salt should be able to engrave it on your favourite dog of a coin ;) A passport photograph would do the same trick, but I realise it'd be far less romantic and numismatic. :)

Oh, is that how it works?  ???  No matter, I wouldn't know what the initials were anyway, BM24 or anything else. I haven't even seen a counterstamped coin with her or my initials on it...that I know of.
