I have a tanner of hers from the same year (different mint though) which I thought had a decent portrait, but yours knocks mine into a cocked hat. Stunning :thumbsup:

Very nice portrait on that. i do love me a Lizzie. Very evocative of a golden age.

I don’t understand! You sorted out both the garage and the loft in half a day? I’ve been sorting out our loft for 2 years and still not finished it, what magic do you use?. :D
Beautiful coin :thumbsup:
