The vendor now in his 80s has had this coin in his possession for 15 - 20 years, and was given it as a gift by a night club owner in who ran an antique shop as a hobby to enable him to acquire antiques "over the counter", neither the current vendor (who for many years believed the coin was a ) nor the night club owner were interested in coins and the presumption was it came in over the counter 20 - 40 years ago as part of an antique or perhaps contained in an antique piece or furniture. Well struck and pleasing VF without problems or weak areas all design and legend bold and clear.
