Another for your perusal (double florin/crown)
« on: November 15, 2021, 04:25:04 PM »

The obverse and reverse are of the crown, but with numerous inaccuracies .
The weight is wrong for either a double florin or crown.

I've spotted a wrong 'un, haven't I?

Apologies if this is all old news for everyone - I'm still new to this little hobby and just want to make sure I'm grasping the essentials correctly.

Not to mention her mouth. A very angry look overall.

Name and address given on eBay are OK, company, hedley's antiques exists. They may be willing to withdraw the piece?

Pictures preserved for posterity.

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