I love that John! My dad was named Fred.....and he would have been so tickled to see a coin with the word 'Fred' at the top. :lol:

About this time last year I was very lucky to find this gem of a coin and one of my favourites . It was the kind of find you just stare at in disbelief and then go have a sit down on the edge of the field with a cuppa !
