Very nice too. Lovely to get a silver and especially one that fills a gap in your collection. A couple of buttons there which are highly desirable too.

Are you still friends? :lol:
Live long and prosper.

I couldn't resist trying to clean the black cruddy dots off so i used 'the pink stuff ' and a toothbrush and ruined the coin . It looked like an aluminium disc . So i watched a video on youtube on making silver coins look better . I had nothing to lose so bleach and tin foil it was . Give me your honest opinion. Positive or negative . But i think i've saved it .
