Thank you so much, Maythem...

Yes, this one looks entirely like silver... the one from before is very tarnished, so it was hard for me to tell, whether it was silver or not... but I am learning...  ;-) 

thank you again...  (btw, kudos to you for having such a good memory about the previous coin...)  :)
