I'm going to my first coin show since November 2019 PC (pre-covid). I'm hoping that there are a couple dealers with some world boxes to dig through.
Funny because recently someone (maybe you?) posted about it and I thought, I should get one of those. And then I found one.
Congratulations btw... nice example.
It's one of those things you have to buy when you see it.
I looked into the Bermuda penny. It's subject to re-strike just like the 1860 Cambodian. Was re struck in a few different base metals and silver. The hunt is on....thanks I was looking for a project with substance. Any pointers? I prefer a original first but will entertain re strikes as well no problem.
Suggestion...look at the 24-25 Togo run.
I think I have one of the Togo coins - whichever is the more common one. I got lucky many years ago when I went into a coin shop and they had recently bought an album from someone who had some really nice coins. The employee told me anything I wanted in it was 50 cents, and I got a lot of great coins from Africa and other harder to find places. Coins from colonies and more obscure places is one of my biggest collecting interests.
If you want a Bermuda penny I see there are some on eBay. Beyond that I don't know. You might also be interested in the 1788 Barbados penny if you don't have one.
I like this last group far and away more than the others.
There's something about a silver coin that looks like it was just made five minutes ago.
That, and the Katanga Cross coin. Far and away the coolest coin struck anywhere in 1961 and with a great story to go with it.
Same coin in gold.
