Description Seller was given this coin by his grandfather who lived in Belfast in the 1970s. It was mutilated as a protest against the circulation of Irish coins in N. Ireland. They were defaced by apprentices in the shipyards and in machine shops in West Belfast. I classify it as a protest coin. Purchased from Jonathan Major / Kendal, Cumbria, UK. (Jl. 15, 2016) ($8).
