    Hey y'all!

    Finding one of these in general is a bit hard. So I saw this on @Brian Bucklan site and bought it. Easy. Not complaining. No brainer right there. Really stoked about this little coin. It looks better in hand!

    Great pick up for the price... I guess I just missed it as I was on the site twice that day - poor timing I guess? Pretty amazing you have it in hand so quick? But good for you for sure!!! Super cool coin.
