"I would just like to point out, I am not saying your coin is one of these coins, only that there certainly are similarities and I wouldn't rule out the possibility that you could have a rather old coin. Whilst there are similarities in these…"

Michael replied to BikerBonnie's discussion what kind of drink goes in these antique glasses in the group Whadja Find Today
