    This is another one from Andy that filled a hole. Then in my research I think I found an obverse die match on CNG.

    Looks like you're having one amazing week. Two lovely coins at the same time. Couldn't get any better, unless there's a third coin we haven't seen yet. :D

    That's lovely! Agree it's an obverse die match to the CNG example.

    Actually I have 5 more from the last two shows (consecutive weekends) but it would be a bit much to dump them all at once.

    Looks like there's tons of relief on the obverse. Nice capture.
