My family in Detroit had the good fortune to know a volunteer, Marion Noble, of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade. This brigade of volunteers from the US joined volunteers from other countries in 1936 to fight for the Second Republic, a fight that ended, tragically I think, with the victory of Franco and the fascists and the demise of the Second Republic in 1939.
I found a blog with Mr. Noble's memoire of his time serving in Spain:
@robinjojo . Almost to perfection !
Thank you. I don't have too many 20th century coins, but I was drawn to this example for its beautiful design, especially the obverse, as well as its association with the Second Republic and the Abraham Lincoln Brigade.
I'm afraid that the memory of this brigade, as well as the Spanish Civil War, has faded into virtual oblivion. So much of history has been lost or deemed irrelevant.
Which coin are you referring to? If it is my coin, it is graded MS64.
I really do not place much credence on this system of grading, being quite old school. I prefer words over numbers, calling this coin a choice uncirculated.
Hope this helps.
