Description There was an effort in Northern Ireland in the 1960s and 70s to ban imports of any kind from Ireland. This is the first of several known slogans I've seen. A second example was reported to me by Dr. Brunk a number of years ago, but I've never seen the coin. The seller found this, and a ?UVF? coin listed here, at an auction on the Isle of Man among a large number of Irish coins. He opines that they were brought over by an Irish family when they moved there. A neatly applied, lightly struck slogan on a coin out of circulation for many years. Purchased from Stevie Gilbert / Armagh, Co. Armagh, N. Ireland. (My. 26, 2018). ($7).
