Description The Bailiwick of Jersey is a British Crown Dependency. Though not a part of the UK., Jersey has close ties to it, including legal tender status for its coins and currency. There is a significant minority Catholic population on the island, so this may account for the Nationalist stamp. The seller found the coin, along with three other IRA pieces on English coins in a job lot bought at a car boot in the early 2000's. He also thought it was strange to see the stamp on a Jersey coin. Since the lot included coins from so many places where the British Army would have served, he opined that they may have come from someone who had once served in the military. Purchased from Jamie Davis / Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, UK. (Jn. 23, 2019) $9.
