Me gusta!  Even the wreath is constructed and rendered thoughtfully, and the portrait head is almost human.  Pat L.

The R2 is a bonus but as Pat said it was the portrait that set me back in my seat.In hand the bronze toning that was left by the process makes the coin look just incredible.The blemish above the eye had a white rock cemented in with a mountain of very hard junk.
It is one of about twenty picked out so far,to be zapped. This is out of a 1000 german found lot I have purchased.I exspect to zap many more.Several have already hit the junk box.
