This specimen is really THE best of the type, and one of the very few imo really BOT coins on this BOT gallery.When these are good, they are VERY good, and yours is not only very good, it is a dream!

Amazing coin. I love the way the horse is rendered on the reverse.

Sweey maiden, if you can call an Amazon that and a great coin all round.
